Flinders Island Running Festival
31st August – 2nd September
ONLY 1 WEEK TO GO!!!
The Flinders Island Running Festival is all about getting out and having fun. The running festival started in 2007 as a community fun run and health promotion day and had grown every year since. The festival now includes the 42km Pub2Pub Trail Marathon as well as the 26kmBendigo Bank Pub2Pub, followed by a 5km and 2km fun run the very next day.
The festival encourages as many people to participate at any pace they please. There are no time restrictions or expectations for those who like to take their time, but there is plenty of competition for those who like to push themselves.
This year Samantha Gash will be the festival’s guest speaker. Samantha is an endurance athlete, corporate presenter, writer and social entrepreneur.
