The Fun Run does not offer participation medals or any other awards.
All Half Marathon finishers will receive a participation medal. Additionally the top five male and female finishers will receive:
First: $400 and perpetual trophy
Fourth and Fifth: $50 vouchers to the Runners Shop Canberra
There will also be a barrel draw after the Half Marathon for 5 x $200 Mizuno Vouchers.
We plan to supply Half Marathon pacers for 90 to 150 minutes. We will confirm pacers closer to the event.
The course, apart from the first three kilometers, follows the footpath around the Western Basin of Lake Burley-Griffin. The course includes many iconic Canberra sights such as; Lake Burley-Griffin, the Governor General’s Residence, the National Zoo and Aquarium, Black Mountain Tower and the National Museum.
All YMCA Canberra Runners Club events are dependent on volunteers like you to proceed. If you are available to help on the Saturday or Sunday, please email us.
Since our first race running of the Canberra Half Marathon in 1970, we have had many fine athletes compete and take out the race. The list of Race Winners reads like not only a ‘Who’s Who’ of ACT distance running, but contains some of the best athletes the country has produced. Our previous winners include many who have represented their country.
