We all want to look back on our lives proudly when we reach our senior years, and that means making the most of the energy we have while we're young. Nobody wants to grow old and look back on a life with few to zero achievements, and most people want to fit as much travel into their time on Earth as possible. For countless reasons, Adelaide is a must-visit destination for those who like to experience a place that's truly enriching and draped in both natural and human-made beauty, but if you're more interested in scenic country sights than urban sprawls, you ought to pay a visit to the stunning Barossa Valley.

The Barossa Valley is famous for being one of the nation's most historic wine districts, and it’s only a 50-minute drive from Adelaide. Despite its proximity to the state's capital, the Barossa Valley boasts exceptional views of the unspoilt country, with beautiful vineyards dotting the area. Plus, it enjoys mild temperatures during the early spring, which is when the new Adelaide half marathons will be held. If you want to witness the breathtaking beauty of the Barossa Valley, you should add your name to the ever-growing list of race contenders.

At IRONMAN Oceania, we're proud to introduce the new Runaway Barossa Marathon, which we were inspired to organise following the success of our other mass public sporting events held in several countries, perhaps most notably in Auckland, NZ. The Runaway Barossa Marathon refers to several races being held during the event, and if you find the idea of running a full marathon too daunting, you can always join a 10km race or a half marathon. We even have trails for children to ensure there's something for everybody regardless of age or level of experience, and we encourage you to be a part of the occasion's success for the reasons listed below.

Why You Should Run an Adelaide Country Half Marathon

Most people think marathons are just about testing their physical capabilities, but we'd argue they represent much more than that, especially here in the Barossa Valley. Here's why you should at least consider signing up for one of our races at the Runaway Barossa Marathon:

  • Drink in the sights in the most amazing way possible – There's no better way to appreciate the country scenic views of the Barossa Valley than by traversing the region on foot, and our marathons will allow you do to just that.
  • Explore the hotspots during your stay – Perhaps the area's natural beauty is the primary reason to visit the Barossa Valley, but there are plenty of other things to see while you're here. Barossa is home to some of the nation's most historic wineries, and our races all finish at the renowned Peter Lehmann Winery.
  • A new experience with the people you love – While we're more than happy to invite lone racers to our event, there's no reason why you can't bring along your friends and family for the trip.
