The Bendigo Bank Coffs Harbour Running Festival is a community event for people of all ages and abilities and consists of a 21.1 kilometre half marathon, 10 kilometre fun run, five kilometre fun run, and a three kilometre family fun run/walk.
Held on a bush trail on the Coffs Creek Walkway, the flat, shady course is ideal for runners. The picturesque track hugs the beautiful Coffs Creek and competitors run over floating boardwalks, through swamp forests of mangrove, casuarina and paperbark trees, from the centre of town to the coast and back.
The event raises funds for local children's charities including Life Education Australia, Coffs Coast Autism, Camp Quality and the Early Childhood Intervention Program Coffs Harbour.
2016 will mark the sixth year of the Running Festival which is going from strength to strength attracting runners from across Australia and overseas.
