Medals will be awarded to  place getters in male and female categories for Junior in the 3k and 5km (U18) senior all distances (50+)  and Open categories.

We encourage participants to enjoy the atmosphere of the event village post their event and enjoy a burger from the Rotary BBQ and cheer on incoming runners, many who will be completing their first half or full Marathon. Proceeds from the event help to fund our Kids Run Wild, Kids Run Free Foundation, where we aim to provide as many free entries for kids to run free and remove barriers towards participation.
