All the information on transport and parking for the launceston running festival.

transport information

How to get there?

We recommend walking (if possible) or car sharing to get you to the start line on Saturday and Sunday 1-2 June 2024.

If you're looking for accommodation, Peppers Silo and Peppers Seaport are conveniently located within 200m of the start/finish precinct. A promotion is available for entrants, which you'll receive in your entry confirmation email.

Driving & Parking Information

It is important to note that there will be road closures in place on event day and that street parking in Launceston CBD is very limited (and fees apply).

The vacant block on Lindsay Street, opposite the Silo Hotel will be available for overflow parking. However restrictions will be in place in terms of coming and going. So if you want to make a quick getaway, we recommend parking in the city and walking across through Seaport. It's a lovely short warm up. Please do not park in the Bunnings/JB HiFi/Officeworks carpark, unless you are also purchasing from them on the day.

Council Car Park, 14 High Street, Launceston TAS 7250. 9-minute walk to City Park. Free.

Council Car Park, 24 High Street, Launceston TAS 7250. 13-minute walk to City Park. Free.
