Enabling increased exposure to scenic courses across a range of less accessable or lesser known tracks and trails in the Blue Mountains. These races have been designed to with the marathon distance in mind. However participants should expect to spend considerably longer time wise to complete these courses. Some events may also offer shorter distance runs in conjunction with the long course race.

Australia Day Festivities: Following the traditions of the Australia Day Fatathon the run will begin with the playing of the national anthem. Throughout the day it is hoped that runners and their guests will build the Australia Day atmosphere around their shelters as they best think they can. Suggestions include the smothering of all things in Green & Gold, the application of the Australian Flag to everything (being dignified and respectful of course). The rest we will leave up to you. Around the shute and transition area (for teams) it is planned to have John Williamson on constant cycle. With the occasional break for Rolf Harris. You get the picture, it is about the organisers and the participants working to create an atmosphere that will make this the most memorable run of 2011.

Just across the Highway you will find the Glenbrook Australia day festivities, incorporating the Australian Gnome Convention. Run by the Rotary Club of the Lower Blue Mountains as a community initiative it is well worth a short trip for yourself and/or the kids. More information available here.
