The 25th Elleker Running Festival is Happening in 2021!
ABOUT OUR BIG EVENT:
This year is the BIG 25th year and it’s going to be better then ever before! We have a new name, “Elleker Running Festival” (previously known as “Elleker Half Marathon & 10km Road Race”) with 4 event options to choose from:
– Half Marathon 21.1km
– 10km Run
– 10km Walk
– 2km Kids Dash
Our event attracted over 300 participants in 2019. We had participants travel from as far as Perth, Bunbury, Busselton, Esperance and even the USA to take part!
The event is conducted in and around the small township of Elleker, situated 16 km west of Albany (400km south of Perth). The course is a pleasant, relatively flat route around Grassmere Lake, showcasing picturesque karri forests and farmland. The mild weather at the time of the event (Sunday of the June long weekend) makes for perfect running conditions.
And for the second time, we have the new and improved course. Check out the course maps HERE. You no longer run down Hassell Street. Instead we Start and Finish on the Elleker Oval, and have a short down and back length along Mutton Bird Road (Half Marathon only).
ALSO……this year all events will be timed with “Chip Timing” by the Fantastic Idle Timing.
