Running long distances is a physical challenge, but for many people, it is also an activity that takes on an almost meditation-like quality. As the kilometres pass you by, you have nothing but time to relax, think, and enjoy as you power through your distance for the day. Relaxing while you run? It might sound strange — but veteran runners know that there is absolutely a type of peace to be found while you run. When you run in the city all the time, though, your thoughts can end up more focused on how to avoid traffic and other hazards than on anything else. Why not get out of Adelaide for running festivals from time to time instead?

The Runaway Barossa Marathon offers just that: a serene escape and the opportunity to run in an idyllic countryside with an incredible climate. In a region, famous for its wine-making, this newest arrival on the slate of Barossa Valley running festivals has a course that ends on the picturesque grounds of the Peter Lehman winery. Here, runners will be able to enjoy a post-race recovery area with food and drink available. More than that, you'll have the opportunity to spend the weekend enjoying not just the world-class running, but access to beautiful sights, incredible wineries, and memorable restaurants. With perhaps one of the most unique courses available among South Australia running festivals, you'll find it's the perfect place to let your mind wander as you run.

A weekend event of fun and fitness

On the day of the race, you'll quickly realise just how different an experience these festivals are. With big blue skies above, well-maintained roads and vineyard paths for running ahead, and a big finish to look forward to, you'll hardly have time to think about how far you have to run. Instead, you can view it as an exciting challenge to vanquish.

No matter which distance you choose to run during the festival, whether it's the 10km or the marathon, the Peter Lehman winery serves as the end point for them all. How many other Barossa running festivals can boast such a prime location for the finish line? Catch your breath, recover, and then enjoy delectable food and wine. With ample parking available, your family can join in the celebration with ease.

An exciting development for running festivals in Australia

Backed by IRONMAN Oceania, the same team behind other major running events and festivals in Australia such as the Noosa Triathlon, participants in the Barossa Runaway Marathon will experience a world-class event with premier quality. No matter how you choose to celebrate after you cross the finish line, there is no shortage of ways to indulge and enjoy the area. Why not take some time to "run away" from the daily grind for a weekend and experience the finest scenery available in South Australia?
