Welcome to the Mudgee Running Festival


The Mudgee Running Festival is well known for its relaxed, friendly atmosphere – perfect for the first timer who is looking for a no-pressure race, yet still, a course that is challenging to the experienced marathoner.

The longer courses weave through the picturesque Mudgee valley; past vineyards, wineries, farmland, grazing cattle, and a band of friendly and enthusiastic volunteers cheering you on! And the shorter events run alongside the Cudgegong River and around Lawson Park.

Our festival is a fun, family event with a great supportive atmosphere. There’s a jumping castle for the kids, a massage service for competitors, food & drinks, and very importantly, good coffee!

Online registrations are now open. We hope you’ll be joining us this August to celebrate our 20th anniversary!

We'll be celebrating all day

This August we’re excited 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 will receive a commemorative Mudgee Running Festival t-shirt or singlet (yes, it’s the first year we’re offering a choice!). Other competitors and supporters can also purchase additional shirts online.

Every participant will receive a 20th Anniversary collector’s edition finisher’s medal. And as an incentive to encourage you to register in advance – if register before 1 August you’ll be able to personalise your race bib.
