Mudgee Running Festival 2014 Results

SUNDAY 24th AUGUST 2014

mudgee marathonThe Mudgee Running Festival is well known for its relaxed friendly atmosphere which is perfect for the first timer who is looking for a no-pressure race, yet is still a course that is challenging to the experienced marathoner.

The course weaves itself through the picturesque Mudgee valley; past vineyards, farmland, grazing cattle, and a band of friendly and enthusiastic volunteers cheering you on!

All competitors for the Marathon and Half Marathon receive a quality Mudgee Running Festival running T-shirt (subject to availability for registrations after the 23rd of July) with successful finishers also receiving a Finishers’ medal.

It’s a fun family event and a great festival atmosphere – a Jumping Castle for the kids, food/drinks, merchandise tents, and very importantly, a good coffee van onsite! There’s a free BBQ lunch for runners, and a food kiosk with lots available for supporters for a small fee – so we’d love it if you’d stay for Presentation.
