Run with the Wind is a 5km and 10km fun run event that features a unique course through the wind turbines at the Woodlawn Wind Farm near the towns of Tarago and Bungendore, NSW, approximately 45 minutes drive from Canberra and under 3 hours from Sydney.

This event is the perfect opportunity to run surrounded by stunning views of rural landscapes and the majestic Lake George. More than 600 runners take part annually in what is probably one of Australia's most unique fun runs.

The fun run is hosted by the owner and operator of the wind farm, Infigen Energy. The event is produced by sports and athlete management-marketing firm, 100% Events.
