Newcastle Permanent - Lake Macquarie Running Festival
Sunday 25 August 2019
The Lake Macquarie Running Festival includes a Half Marathon (21.1 kilometres), 10.5 kilometres Fun Run and four kilometre Kids Scamper.
This event is a first class (Athletics Australia accredited) event. Events will attract over 3000 competitors to the region. The course is arguably one of the best in Australia. There are very few events run with a total waterfront aspect and boasting total road closure. With all aspects taken into account this could easily become the most desirable running event in Australia.
The Half Marathon competitors will complete two loops between Warners Bay and Speers Point. The Fun Run will complete one loop.
It is waterfront for the complete distance and boasts spectacular views across magnificent Lake Macquarie. The surface is extremely good and the terrain is basically flat with some minor undulations. This is an exceptional runner's course.
