The Twilight Runs are a two-day, two-event series occurring in the evening, on 29 February & 1 March. Each evening visits a similar but different course along the coastline of Holdfast Bay. The first event, the Star Run, occurs along Brighton foreshore and second event, the Moon Run, occurs along the Glenelg foreshore.
Twilight Runs are strategically planned to occur on the final days of summer, giving us a chance to enjoy some of the last warm evenings of the season.
Due to permit constraints, there is a cap of 45 people for each event. Only the first event will offer the marathon distance, unless there is enough interest to host a marathon for both days.
Star Run. The Star Run utilises the course of ‘BrightonUp’, following a 5km loop along the Brighton foreshore, starting and ending at the Brighton jetty. Distances of more than 5km will involve more than one loop.
Moon Run. The Moon Run utilises the course of ‘GoGlenelg’, following a 5km loop along the Glenelg foreshore, starting and ending at the junction where Pier St meets the pedestrian pathway. Distances of more than 5km will involve more than one loop.
See Facebook event pages for the course maps.
There will be 1 aid station on the course. It is present at the start/finish of each loop and is passed twice per loop – approximately 4km into the loop and at the start/finish of the loop. The aid station will have lollies, hydration, and first aid.

**MARATHON: In order to ensure we have enough participants in the marathon for it to be recognised as official by the Australian 100 Marathon Club, we are not opening marathon registrations for the Moon Run unless there are first enough marathon’ers in the Star Run. A person does not have to register for both events, but the second event’s marathon will not open unless there are is least enough interest to host a marathon on the first event.
