Welcome to the home of the Runningworks WTF 50 & 100 Miler, the first and only AURA-sanctioned 100 mile race in Western Australia.
Held annually on the last weekend in September (WAs Queens Birthday Public Holiday weekend), the 50mi and 100mi events both start at 6am on Saturday, and have generous cut-off times. The 50mi event runs south from Jarrahdale to Dwellingup, mainly following the Munda Biddi mountain bike trail. The 100mi event runs from Dwellingup to Jarrahdale and back again, along the same course, with a bonus out and back hill on the outbound leg.
Joondalup Half Marathon
About the event
The Rottnest Running Festival on Sunday, 21 October 2018 has a full 42.2km marathon along with 21.1km half marathon, 5km and 10km fun runs on Rottnest Island in Western Australia.
The start of the Rottnest Marathon is heralded by the wail of bagpipes on the Sunday morning. The bagpipes have become a traditional part of the marathon and can be heard throughout the marathon at Armstrong Hill.
The four lap marathon course circumnavigates the salt lakes in the centre of the Island via the sealed roads. Half marathoners run two laps; 10km runners/walkers one lap; and the 5km is an out and back course.
The event is organised by the West Australian Marathon Club, with proceeds donated to Royal Flying Doctor Service.
