Long-distance runners from around Australia will converge on Canberra for a weekend of activity with whole family, at the iconic Australian Running Festival on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 April 2017.
Entrants can enjoy a full weekend of fitness and fun across five scenic courses that showcases the best of the nation’s capital. The Half Marathon, The Canberra Times Marathon and the 50km Ultra Marathon will take place on Sunday 9 April, and will take participants on a route following the Parliamentary Triangle, along the banks of Lake Burley Griffin and finishing on East West lawns.
