Event Overview

The Bendigo Bank Coffs Harbour Running Festival is organised by the Rotary Club of Coffs Harbour.

The 10th annual event will be held on Sunday 11th September 2022 and is a community event for people of all ages and abilities.

The event consists of the Beachside Radiology Half Marathon, C.ex Group 10km, Coastal Works 5km Fun Run/Walk and the Key Employment  3km Fun Run/Walk. In 2022, the event is introducing a new event which is the  Half Marathon, 10km and 5km combined to make the total distance 36.1km called the Mercedes-Benz Coffs Coast Nyami and Jaanybarr of the Creek.

The Southern Cross University Schools Challenge is also back for 2022 offering cash prizes to the schools with the highest number of participants to spend on sporting equipment.

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.

The event raises funds for local Rotary charities including Life Education and Early Connections.
