The Flinders Island Running Festival from Friday, 1 September to Sunday, 3 September 2017 is all about getting out and having fun, starting in 2007 as a community fun run and health promotion day and has grown every year since.
There is now a 5km run/walk on the Friday, 42km marathon and 26km Pub 2 Pub events on the Saturday, and a 2km and 5km fun run on the Sunday. The 26km Pub 2 Pub and be run or walked solo or as part of a team.
The festival is still a community weekend, encouraging as many people to participate at any speed, pace or gait they please. For many local families it's a way of getting together and celebrating Father's Day. There are no time restrictions or expectations for those who like to take their time but there is plenty of competition for runners who like to test themselves. And of course there is plenty of opportunity for good food, great views and inspiring conversations!
