South West Rocks Running Festival

Sunday 11 June 2017 to Sunday 10 June 2018

The South West Rocks Running Festival, formally the Macleay River Marathon, in its 35th year, is a scenic riverside run along the banks of the beautiful Macleay River and back to Trial Bay Gaol. It is held every year on the June long weekend Sunday. All proceeds go to local charities and community groups.

The programme includes Marathon, Half Marathon, 10 kilometre run, five kilometre Enticer Run, plus Junior events. Please visit the web site for more information.

All marathon competitors are expected to reach the 32 kilometre mark (Rotary Park) by 10.30am and to finish by 12pm (midday), due to road closures.

Road closures are from Spencerville Bridge to Hat Head turnaround. Competitors must run on the left hand side of the road at all times, and in town area must run on footpaths where available.
