The popular Mudgee Running Festival is home to one of the friendliest and well organised one day festivals on the NSW running calendar, welcoming locals and visitors from both near and far.
The full day of events includes the 5kFun Run/Walk, the 10km race and the more challenging half and full marathon. All events take in the beautiful Mudgee surrounds, and the program ensures there really is something for everyone, from serious competitors to novice runners and the whole running family.
The event is well supported by many locals who know the benefits of living in our beautiful region. However, if you are coming from out of town, why not make a weekend of it! Mudgee has a great range of accommodation from quaint B&B’s to amazing homes and hotels that can house large groups. And, when your event is over, there are many cafes, restaurants and around 40 cellar doors to explore and unwind in.
Onsite food, drinks (including great coffee) and a jumping castle provide a relaxed family atmosphere and a massage service for the competitors will ensure that everyone is limbered up and ready to take on their chosen course.
Take a long weekend to enjoy your Mudgee experience. There are great cafes, charming wine bars and casual brasseries, with no less than 40 wineries within easy reach. Online registrations are now open.
Our annual event would not be possible without the support of our valued sponsors. In particular, our thanks goes to Lowe Wines and Peiter van Gent for their support of the half marathon, Wilpinjong for our 10km and we welcome F45 Training as first time sponsors of our 5km fun run/walk.
This year when you participate, it wont just be your body thanking you for (for a great work-out in Mudgee’s crisp, clean air), it will be the team at RUN DIPG. For each and every participant that registers, we will be donating $2 towards RUN DIPG, an initiative set up to raise money for DIPG research with Hunter Medical Research. DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) is the most deadly form of childhood cancer (it makes up 10-15% of all brain tumours in children) and we want to help them find a cure. Find out more at www.rundipg.org.
We are delighted to advise that online registrations are now open!
