Brooks Rottnest Running Festival

Brooks Rottnest Running Festival!

This community event is conducted by the West Australian Marathon Club Inc. with the proceeds being donated to Royal Flying Doctor Service. Our aim is to promote the sport of distance running.  The Fun Run options have been designed for those who want to be part of the great community event but feel 42.2km or 21.1km is too far. The 5km is ideally suited for walkers or the very young with their parents and prams.

The 29th Rottnest Marathon and accompanying 21.1km, 10km and 5km fun run is organised by the West Australian Marathon Club with the event proceeds being donated to Royal Flying Doctor Service.

The inaugural Rottnest Marathon was run in October 1994. In that year 72 runners completed the marathon with Ray Brown winning the men’s race in a time of 2:35:50 and visiting New Zealand runner Nyla Carroll took the women’s title in 2:52:20 - this remains the course record for women. The current course record for men is 02:28:57 set by Gerard Hill in 2019. The previous mens course record was 2:29:24, set in 1998 by Todd Ingraham.

The start of the RunFun Travel Rottnest Marathon is heralded by the wail of bagpipes at 6.55am on the Sunday morning. The bagpipes have become a traditional part of the marathon and can be heard throughout the marathon at Armstrong Hill. It is anticipated that over 300 runners will tackle the four-lap marathon course. This year, the event will start and finish right at the entrance to Rottnest Island adjacent to the Main Jetty.

The Half Marathon starts at 8.15am by which time most of the marathon runners will be well and truly on the way though their first lap. It is anticipated around 700 runners will cover the same route as the marathon course but only twice!

The 10K Run and 5K Run start at 10.30am and 10.15am respectively by which time most of the marathon runners will be on their last laps. It is anticipated around 1000 runners and walkers will participate in either the of these events that will cover the same route as the marathon course.

Presentation location and times will be confirmed shortly.
