Forster Running Festival 2018

Come And Run Forster!

Brooks/Compressport Forster Running Festival 23rd September 2018

The Forster Running Festival is in its’ 9th year of running now, with each year becoming more and more successful. The event could not be a success without the support of our local sponsors, so when you come to Forster please make sure you check out these businesses and help to support our local community.

We now offer you another reason to get away for a perfect spring weekend and visit our beautiful town in the Great Lakes. Surrounded by ocean and the stunning Wallis Lake, you will make your way running over the Forster Tuncurry Bridge and along both breakwalls, where all this beauty will form an amazing backdrop to one of the most picturesque run courses you will experience.

The event will be staged from Forster Main Beach area. Enjoy a family day out of fun and fitness where competitors can choose from the kids 4km or 2km fun run, 5km run, 10km run and a Half Marathon. Alternatively, you can choose to take on the ultimate challenge: the “Treble Bridge Buster”. Not a runner? Team up with your friends and family and enjoy the beautiful 4km IMF #WalkSweatInspire event, taking in the stunning foreshore.

Make sure you register before the 30th June 2018 to get your name/nickname on your race BIB simply. There no better way to attract support on the course. Also there is a Team Trophy – be sure you register your team or join a team when entering. The largest participating team will be announced as the winner of the award. If planning on running in the Treble Bridge Buster, Half Marathon, 10k or 5k register before Sunday 30th June 2018 to receive your FREE RACE Singlet.

We will have a number of prize draws in the lead up to the event. Prizes have been provided by event sponsors which include Compressport Gear and Brooks Vouchers. The earlier you register the more chances you have to WIN.

We generally have beautiful weather during the Running Festival, which is perfect for a dip in the ocean after the run. All competitors throughout the day receive finishing medals, fresh fruit, and ice cream for their recovery. The stage is set for the Forster Running Festival to be a great event. Get your entry in before the Early Bird finishes on Sunday 30th June 2018.

Good luck with your training and preparations for the Forster Running Festival. We look forward to welcoming you, cheering you on and sharing an energised weekend.

Until then… #RunHappy
