Runaway Barossa Marathon
A race experience that’s all about sharing in life’s simple pleasures.
Barossa Valley’s rolling countryside, quiet roads and wide open skies will host a marathon, half marathon, 10km run and kids run on Saturday, 21 October 2017.
Each distance will be run on a mix of sealed roads and hard packed trails. The event courses are undulating and scenic offering a various mix of running terrain, with a combination of running on-road, bike trails and through vineyards. The courses take in the highlights of the entire Barossa Valley region and take athletes on a journey through some of the most picturesque locations in the Barossa Region. A mix of historical buildings, private vineyard feeling and lush grounds will make for a memorable journey. The finish line for all events is set in the unique and historic Peter Lehmann Wines.
The Kids run is open to children between 5 and 12 years old (minimum age must be 5 years of age on race day to compete). Entrants under the age of 7 years must be accompanied by an adult on course at all times. Parents whose children are 7 years+ are more than welcome to run with their children. Parents aren’t required to enter or register. The Kids Run is a family friendly event and therefore baby buggies/prams can be used.
Timing results will be provided by age group category:
- 5-6 years
- 7-9 years
- 10-12 years
There will be no official timing results for the kids run as the event is based around a fun and friendly non-competitive atmosphere. All children who complete the kids run will receive a medal.
The kids race will commence on Para Road outside Peter Lehmann Winery, participants will turn left onto Langmeil Road before performing a U-turn coming back along Langmeil Road and taking a left turn onto Stelzer Road.
