Regos Open Mar 2022

2020 Running Festival postponed


29 July 2021

Once again the COVID virus has turned our event on its head, it a hurts a little more this time as regos were open (we were on track for another record number of entries) and 90% of the preparation was complete. Similar to our marathon runners, we had done all the hard work, it was time to taper and get excited about our event. 

Sadly, with COVID numbers still rising sharply, the committee feels it is too risky to hold our event in August. We hope you understand.
Please save our 2022 date in your calendars 21 Aug! 



August 2022 we’re hoping to be celebrating our 20th Anniversary – we’re celebrating across the entire day with four events: Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km Fun Run & 5km Fun Run/Walk.

All marathon and half marathon competitors who register before 31 July will receive a commemorative Mudgee Running Festival t-shirt. Other competitors and supporters can also purchase additional shirts online.

Every participant will receive a 20th Anniversary finisher’s medal. And  if register before 1 August you’ll be able to personalise your race bib.

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).
