The Bendigo Bank Coffs Harbour Running Festival is organised by the Rotary Club of Coffs Harbour.
The 11th annual event will be held on Sunday 10th September 2023 and is a community event for people of all ages and abilities.
The event consists of the Beachside Radiology 21.1km Half Marathon, C.ex Group 10km, Coastal Works 5km Fun Run/Walk and the Key Employment 3km Fun Run/Walk.
The Mercedes-Benz Coffs Coast Nyami and Jaanybarr of the Creek involves runners completing the 10km, then the 21.1km and finally the 5km to make a total distance of 36.1km.
Held on a bush trail on the Coffs Creek walkway, the flat, shady courses are ideal for runners. The picturesque track hugs the beautiful Coffs Creek and competitors run over floating boardwalks, through swamp forests of mangrove, casuarina and paperbark trees from the centre of town to the coast and back.
All proceeds from the event go to local Rotary charities such as Life Education and Early Connections.
