Fremantle Running Festival

After last years fantastic event, we’ve outgrown the paths in Leighton Beach so we are on the move and heading back to the Freo CBD and onto the roads!  

This community event is organised by the West Australian Marathon Club with part proceeds going to the National Breast Cancer Care Foundation.  Runners have the option of a Half Marathon, 10km run or 5km walk/run. All Half Marathon finishers will receive a finishers medal.
