One of the state’s most anticipated running events will return to Huskisson this month for the annual Pearl Izumi Husky Running Festival which is expected to draw hundreds of athletes set to take part in either the 2km, 5km or signature 21km event.
In a huge coupe for runners who are aspiring towards the milestone of completing a half marathon, competitors will be able to team up and conquer a modest 10.5km each.
Making events memorable is their motto, and Elite Energy are committed to practicing what they preach by ensuring their events remain focused on adopting active and healthy lifestyles and encouraging people to participate rather than be intimated.
Entering into its fifth year, this course is one of the most spectacular on the Coast with the course taking in the best of Huskisson’s world class scenery. Not to mention it’s relatively flat making way for some fast running.
It is the ideal course for competitors to test themselves and take the step up to their first half marathon or use it as a training race for the Sydney Marathon which will take place just three weeks later.
Huskisson still remains a hidden gem of the South Coast and this event is a great chance for local businesses to reap the benefits in what is traditionally a quiet time of year with hundreds of runners and their families converging onto the quaint seaside town for a weekend of activity, eating out and making the most of nearby tourist attractions.
Entries are now open. Visit the event page for more information and to secure your spot on the starter’s line.
