RICHMOND is preparing to hit the road to Bendigo and Echuca for next week’s AFL Community Camp.

Split groups of Tigers players are due in both cities on Monday for two days, with a chance to view and be photographed with the 2017 premiership cup to precede the camp on Sunday from 11am to 2pm at Rosalind Park in Bendigo.

The Tigers will be officially welcomed to Bendigo at a City of Greater Bendigo civic reception on Monday morning.

Players will then visit patients at Bendigo Health and students at local schools on Monday afternoon before joining VFLW and AFL Central Victoria youth girls and Bendigo Pioneers players for a training session at the Queen Elizabeth Oval at 4pm.

On Tuesday, Richmond will hold a training session at the QEO from 9.15am to 10.30am. The session is open to the public.

A list of players visiting each city, including homegrown hero Dustin Martin and fellow stars Trent Cotchin and Jack Riewoldt, has yet to be released.
