South-west runners and walkers are set to put foot to pavement for bushfire relief.
Groups are rallying behind the worldwide Relief Run - a virtual run or walk which participants can partake at anytime and anywhere this weekend.
There are 21.1 kilometre half marathon and 5km options and all proceeds go to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.
A group from the Warrnambool Athletics Club (WAC) is gathering people for the half marathon while Go Vita Warrnambool is calling on people to join a 5km run/walk.
The half marathon will begin from Warrnambool's Pavillion Cafe and Bar at 7am on Sunday.
The 5km run/walk will begin at 10am from the Go Vita shop on Fairy Street.
WAC member Sam Barker got the ball rolling for the half marathon.
"I thought being part of that community I could reach out to a lot of local runners," she said.
She spotted the global initiative on a Facebook page called Running Mums Australia.
Barker has been personally affected by this bushfires.
"I have family that live in East Gippsland that have been impacted by the fires," she said.
"We've had family that have had to be evacuated.
"And we like to go to East Gippsland and travel to the east coast of Australia."
Barker said it was an inclusive, supportive and social run.
"Our motivation is being able to do something to raise money through something we love," she said.
The group that will take off at 7am will run the Warrnambool Running Festival half marathon course in reverse.
It's not an official WAC event so no marshals will be on the course.
