There’s something truly exhilarating about moving under the power of your own body. Those of you who frequently run already understand the adrenaline rush you can experience just by putting one foot in front of the other in the right setting. It can come from the gorgeous vista in front of you, the sensation of the wind in your hair, or the swell of pride that comes from knowing you’re strong and fast enough to handle even the most challenging terrain. People enjoy running for many reasons, and now there’s a way for your children to experience the same rush.

Parents who lead active lifestyles can sometimes struggle to engage their kids in the same activities. You might love the idea of running a marathon, but such undertakings may seem intimidating to younger people. However, that’s not to say your child can’t experience all the joy of a fulfilling run. Sometimes, it’s just about finding an event that will show them what an enjoyable pastime running can be. Residents of Adelaide, South Australia looking for kids runs have an exciting new opportunity to challenge themselves and present their children with an opportunity to become interested in running: The Runaway Barossa Marathon.

A New Standard for South Australia Kids Runs

Barossa Valley is a beautiful, scenic region just 65km south-west of Adelaide. It’s also close to Tanunda, Seppeltsfield, Nuriootpa, Gawler, and several other picturesque communities. Replete with spellbinding views and varied terrain, these areas make the perfect setting for a long-distance run. However, the Runaway Barossa Marathon also offers unprecedented opportunities for kids to get in on the action. If you’ve been looking for kids runs in Australia, you’ll find the relaxed and inclusive atmosphere at this event perfect for introducing your children to the pastime you already know and love.

Meanwhile, you’ll be able to enjoy all the delights the Barossa Valley offers.
