Well, we all know what 2020 has presented so far. One challenge after another has beset everyone thus far, so why not add one more to the list with this year's virtual running festival! Unlike what we've seen so far, this challenge can be completed with your mates, can be done at your own pace, can be done on your own course, and best of all can be done at a time suited to you!
Grab your best running buddies and complete a 5km, 10km, half or full marathon over the first weekend of August. $5 from every entry to this year's event will be donated to our principal charity, Ronald McDonald House. We will provide you with a virtual bib to print and use for your run, along with a completion certificate to potentially frame when finished.
If you're planning to run a marathon, you'll be completing Australia's second-longest consecutive marathon with 2020 being the 48th time it has started! Register today and take part in yet another community-building event as we look to recover from everything that's been thrown at us so far in 2020.
Event details and schedule
Some notes for the weekend of the virtual event;
1. You MUST complete your chosen distance in one, consecutive effort. Completing a marathon or half marathon over the three days won't count.
2. There are no set courses to run. If you visit our website, the courses from our 2019 festival can be used if you wish. Townsville Running Festival does not endorse or recommend any courses that don't comply with current local, state, and national laws that would contravene COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings and events. Your course is your choice.
3. There will be no provided road closures, bag drops, aid stations, or drink stops set up over the weekend. Please plan your course accordingly and arrange these things individually.
4. Don't forget to share your results with us to be added to the leaderboard.
