Festivals can be a wonderful way to spend time outside and have fun, but they aren’t always the healthiest experiences. Most festivals involve loud music, food kiosks, and huge crowds of strangers. You might have a good time, but you probably won’t come back feeling refreshed and invigorated. In fact, you could come back feeling totally stressed. However, not all festivals are music festivals. There’s at least one kind of festival that challenges you to become a stronger and more focused individual by participating, and which leaves you feeling better than you did before you started. We’re talking about taking part in a marathon.

Running a marathon provides you with innumerable benefits. It can help you work out your body, focus your mind, and even raise your self-esteem. However, did you know that running a marathon can also be a lot of fun? When you choose a race that takes you through the heart of a beautiful area like the countryside around Adelaide, a marathon can offer you valuable chances to see new sights and try new experiences. Places such as the Barossa Valley are home to some of the country’s best wineries and restaurants, providing everything you need for a weekend getaway after you’ve completed your run.

Some marathons take advantage of the amenities along their routes to provide participants with a festival experience that celebrates their achievements. If you’re looking for an Adelaide marathon festival offering such experiences, consider the Runaway Barossa Marathon.
