Bush Marathon Festival in Canberra, ACT

The Bush Marathon Festival in Canberra on Saturday July 20th and Sunday July 21st 2013 has 16km, 10km, 5km and Kids 2km events on the Saturday, and 21.1km Half Marathon, 42.2km Marathon and 63.3km Ultra Marathon events on the Sunday.

These events are fully off road, nearly all on well-maintained management trails in the nature reserves. The courses do not take in the peaks, instead sticking to the undulating trails on the lower slopes.

The Sunday events follow an out and back course: the half marathon is once out and back; the full marathon is twice out and back; and the ultra marathon is three times out and back.
