The inaugural Hobart Airport Marathon Festival is set along Queens Domain, Hobart waterfront area, historic Battery Point and the spectacular Derwent River foreshore.

With five distances on offer, the full marathon (42.2km), half marathon (21.1km), 10km, 5km run, 5km walk, 2km fun run and walk, everyone has an opportunity to experience the thrill of crossing the finish line with Hobart's iconic waterfront as the backdrop.

The half marathon is a one-loop course with marathon entrants completing a two lap course making the most of the on-course entertainment and crowds of spectators before a red carpet 'hero' finish.

With a distance to suit every ability and age group, this community-focused event caters to all those wanting to take part, including families and those with both physical and intellectual disabilities.

The 2km event allows parents with prams and wheelchair entrants to take part and enjoy the festival atmosphere. Race start times are scheduled to allow for parents to run the longer distances and then return in time to run with the kids and enjoy all the free fun in the family entertainment precinct.
