Enjoy Scenic Country Views of the Barossa Valley Like Never Before by Running a Half Marathon
Because you work hard almost every day of the year, you deserve the chance to blow off steam by enjoying a weekend getaway, and there's no more scenic destination than the Barossa Valley. While famed for being one the nation's most historic wine regions, the Barossa Valley offers more than just a sip or two of fine beverages. Here, you'll find some of the most spectacular walking and running trails in the region, which is only a 50-minute drive away from Adelaide's city centre. Plus, in addition to half marathons being held on certain trails for the first time this year, there will also be events for children – and full marathons if you think you're up to it.
At IRONMAN Oceania, we're introducing the Runaway Barossa Marathon for the first time, and we're inviting you, your friends, and your family to participate. We believe that there's no better way to see the scenic country views offered by the region than by traversing its numerous trails on foot, and we're expecting thousands of runners from Australia and overseas to help celebrate the introduction of this event. On all our trails, which include sealed roads and biking terrain, we'll have aid stations positioned to keep you comfortable, safe, and hydrated while running. Plus, when you reach the finish line at the Peter Lehmann Winery, you'll be given a medal to prove your achievement.
