Bankstown Half Marathon "Hidden Half" & Mayoral 3km Walk

Welcome back! 
We are happy to announce we will be hosting a new fun run in June 2015.

The Georges River - Festival of the Feet 
will replace The Heart of the Lake and Hidden Half fun runs

21.1km 7.30am
3km 7.35am

The Event

The event features a distance certified, sealed, lakeside course, great atmosphere and excellent organisation.

The half-marathon course provides a balanced and "honest" 21.1km course with a good mix of hills and flats. This race will start at 7.30am.

The 3km course is fast and flat but it also provides for an "easy" walk/run course for the beginner runner and family groups.


Awards will be presented for outright 1st, 2nd & 3rd female and male with age and other categories for both races.
