One of the main events of the weekend is the Henry Lawson Half Marathon. Aptly named after the Australian poet and local icon that was born in Grenfell, the 21.1km race will see competitors come from near and far to test themselves on this fast and flat 2 lap course. Perfectly positioned in the calendar year, those more enthusiastic runners in the field will see where they are at in the lead up to other major half marathon events.
For those that are new to the distance they will have solace with the thought that this half marathon is one of the flattest on the annual running calendar. The Henry Lawson Half also brings a different and fun element to the distance with the provision to run the half marathon as a team. Entrants can opt to run the course as a two person team with each member completing one 10.55km lap. The best part is you will be all done on Saturday in time to grab a pub meal at any one of Grenfell’s six establishments.
