Stromlo Running Festival moves to November

Entries for the Stromlo Running Festival, which is entering its seventh year, are now open. The event, which is now being held in November, will again feature three trail running events, providing an opportunity for runners of all levels to participate. The festival will include a 10km, 30km and 50km course – catering for beginners through to highly experienced runners.

The 10km course, which kicks off at 8am, offers spectacular scenery as participants run around the lower slopes of Mount Stromlo. There is no cut-off time for the 10km course, so runners of all levels can participate.

The 30km course is a far more challenging run and sees participants travel around the Western part of the Stromlo Forest, providing beautiful views of the Brindabella Mountains and Canberra. The 30km event starts at 7:30am and is catered towards more experienced athletes with a 4-hour cut-off time to be considered an official finisher of the race.

Athletes seeking a real challenge have the opportunity to compete in the 50km event, which includes the 10km and 20km tracks featured in the 30km event as well as an additional 20km track. This extra loop follows the Molonglo River and climbs through the Arboretum, providing picturesque views of Lake Burley Griffin. This event, which gets underway at 7am, is a serious challenge intended for accomplished runners who are capable of completing a marathon in less than four hours.

The event, held on 22 November, provides competitors with a finisher’s shirt and medal, a post-race breakfast and access to on-site camping. Early bird entries are now open, click HERE for more details and to register.
