Jacob's Creek Barossa Marathon Festival
From $95 Adult, $25 All tickets, $20 All tickets, $15 All tickets
The Jacob's Creek Barossa Marathon Festival is held every year starting in the scenic vineyard-surrounded Tanunda. The event attracts runners from right across the world, wanting to challenge their fitness levels in the marathon (42.2km), half marathon (21.1km), 10km and 5km events. The course is very flat, perfect for those wanting a quick time or 'personal best'.
This year's bound to attract more runners with the announcement of two-time Olympian and Commonwealth Games bronze medallist, Jessica Trengove as the festival's ambassador and 10km runner. Jess will be interacting with runners and the crowds while also taking time for photos and autographs.
The festival is also Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS) certified, meaning you can use the event to get a qualifying time for other international AIMS events, including Boston Marathon.
