Planning for a COVID safe festival is our priority and as restrictions continue to ease and we see events slowly returning to some sort of normal in NSW, we are excited to share with you the schedule for 2021.


We do anticipate running conditions on-course will be very similar to that of our inaugural event, however, some restrictions and health protocols will be required and enforced around key event sites, particular with registration and the event village where runners will start and finish the event. 

In order to comply with government regulations, we have revised the race schedule which provides for a COVID-19 safe race zone and experience for all. 

In addition to the COVID-19 measures in place, we're excited to introduce the Marathon in 2021 and can't wait to see all our endurance athletes taking to the line for the first time come Sunday 2 May. 

This is a reminder that there is plenty of external influences that could see this schedule change at any time.  Please check in regularly, registered runners will be notified at any time this does occur and we thank you in advance for understanding the unprecedented times we're working in. 


Registration + ceremony times will be added shortly.
