Australian Running Festival – entries now open

More than 4,000 entrants took part in the inaugural Australian Running Festival, with 2012 set to build on this success.

Incorporating The Canberra Times Canberra Marathon along with a Half Marathon and fun runs, the Australian Running Festival offers an event for all abilities, from serious runners to joggers, wheelchairs, pushers and walkers.

The following runs will be held in the Nation’s Capital in April:

  • Saturday, April 14, 2012 – 5km and 10km fun runs.
  • Sunday, April 15, 2012 – Half Marathon, Marathon and Ultra Marathon

Australian Running Festival aims to raise much needed funds for more than 600 charities. Last year the event raised more than $80,000 for charities across the country and you can help us raise even more in 2012.
