The inaugural Phillip Island Running Festival takes runners off road and along tracks and trails across Phillip Island’s iconic and beautiful landscape including penguin and wildlife habitat, spectacular coastline, beaches and woodlands. The event is for participants of all ages and fitness levels ranging in distance from a two-kilometre kids’ run to an Ultra Marathon challenge. The new multi-million-dollar Penguin Parade visitor centre will set the stage for a spectacular race start and finish.
Phillip Island Nature Parks is partnering with Trails+ to present this unique event. Race participants and spectators will also be able to enjoy the Nature Parks’ attractions including the Penguin Parade, Koala Reserve, Churchill Island and Antarctic Journey which transforms the event into a true Island experience.
