Maidenwell Running Festival
The final day of the 5th annual Maidenwell Running Festival (formerly known as the Maidenwell Marathon) will be held at the Maidenwell Sportsgrounds today. As the name suggests, the Marathon is for runners and walkers covers 12 events over three days, ranging from 400m foot races to a 56km ultra-marathon. Whatever your fitness or competitive level - and no matter whether you're walking or running - the festival has a distance to suit everyone. Today the Festival will kick off at the Maidenwell Sports Grounds at 6:00am where runners will have the choice of a half marathon, a full marathon or one of a trio of relay races over 7km, 14km or 21km. These will be followed at 8:00am by the final of the 400m foot race, then at 9:00am with the final of the 120m Maidenwell Gift. Later tonight there'll be a BBQ meal available in a marked, unrestricted area next to the Maidenwll Hotel, which will be hosting the annual Maidenwell Bull Ride. Free camping is also available at the Sports Grounds on a first-come, first-served basis if you'd like to stay the full weekend. You can read more about the Maidenwell Running Festival on the Festival's website, or phone Bronwyn on 0439-842-412. You can also read more about what last year's Running Festival was like on our website.

There's an admission fee to get in to see the Bull Ride, which runs in a restricted access area ($15 for adults, $10 for high school students, or $40 for a family - primary school age and younger children are free) but there's no admission fee if you just want to see the band. Free camping and hot showers are available in the hotel's grounds too.
