TBC August 2021

Start time 7:00am

Lawson Park, Mudgee

Registrations opening early 2021

2020 Running Festival postponed


instead we'll be celebrating our 20th Anniversary in 2021

COVID-19 has turned our world upside down and sadly we’ve made the extremely tough decision to CANCEL our event for 2020. 

Many factors led to this outcome; the most significant was the uncertainty as to whether we would even be allowed to hold our event in August. There are at least 3,000 hours of blood, sweat and CHEERS that our volunteers put into planning and hosting our event each year. The possibility of this turning into blood, sweat then TEARS was just too high.

If you have already registered for 2020, you should have recently received a refund for your entry fee. If you haven’t please contact us enquiries@mudgeerunningfestival.com.au. 

We’ll be back again in 2021 for our 20th Anniversary Take #2 and hope to see you all there.

The course weaves through the picturesque Mudgee valley; past vineyards, wineries and farmland. There are water stations, a wine station and enthusiastic volunteers cheering you on!

Visiting our region?

The Mudgee Running Festival is a great excuse to visit our region … but certainly not the only one. Award-winning wines, amazing coffee and stunning landscapes also lure visitors from all over. If it’s an active weekend you and your family/friends are seeking, then there are loads of gorgeous trails and mountain bike trails to be explored (once travel restrictions are lifted, of course).
