about the mcgrath launceston running festival

come join us to run your Half marathon, 10km, 5km or one mile road PB!

Arguably Australia's fastest road race. The Think Big Half Marathon and 10km is favourite for runners of all abilities chasing a personal best. While the 5km and mile are ideal for the up and coming runner or fitness enthusiast.
The mixture of a pancake fast course, historically cool but fast conditions and deep fields makes it a must race for any runner.
