About the Australian Running Calendar

About Us

The Australian Running Calendar was started by Chris Hope, a web developer and Marathon Runner. I hope you find this running calendar useful. If you have any comments or suggestions please feel free to contact us with them and we will take your comments into consideration.

This website was started in February 2012 with the aim of creating the most comprehensive listing of running and walking events across Australia with an easy way to search events to participate in.

It took a lot of work and longer than expected, but by the end of 2012 we had more events listed than any of the other running calendar websites in Australia.

We use a combination of automated and manual checking proceses, as well as monitoring events on Facebook and Twitter and being signed up to many mailing lists to keep an eye on when event information is updated and new dates announced.

No system is perfect though, and sometimes we do miss updates; if you ever find any incorrect information on our website, or know of an event that is not included, please email us and let us know.

All options are inclusive except for the kids, women only and wheelchair options. For example, choosing "On Road", "Off Road", "Short", "NSW" and "ACT" will find on and and off road short distance races in NSW and ACT. Adding "Kids" would limit those results to only events which also have a kids event.
