A full weekend of running events will take place in April as the Australian Running Festival and the iconic The Canberra Times Canberra Marathon return to the capital.


Join thousands of runners from around the country as serious competitors, joggers, wheelchair athletes, pram pushers and walkers take part in one of the festival’s five events.


Australia’s oldest marathon, The Canberra Times Canberra Marathon, is the weekend’s flagship event and will celebrate its 41st year on Sunday 10th April.


For serious runners, the Ultra Marathon will once again be recognised by the International Association of Ultrarunners with competitors from the event eligible for selection to represent Australia at the World Ultra Marathon Championships later in the year.


For those that prefer a shorter distance the 5km and 10km races will both take place on Saturday 9th April.


All five courses will be a one-lap route, exploring the beautiful Canberra lakeside, starting and finishing at the main festival area near Old Parliament House. 




No matter what your age or ability, rise to the challenge this autumn as Canberra comes alive for the Australian Running Festival.


Entries are open now for both individuals and teams.
