SRF is a cup free event!
This means participants will need to carry a device to hold their own personal hydration on course or a reusable/collapsable cup to fill up at points along the way. This is just one of the ways we are working towards minimising waste and our eco footprint. **Add a reusable RunCup during registration for just $7.90 - pick up at the event**
Co-founded by Australia’s marathon great Robert De Castella in 2009, SRF has attracted participants from near and far to compete in the 10, 30, and 50km courses.
The event celebrates the strength, resilience, and courage of our community in the years that followed Canberra's devastating 2003 bushfires. It provides an opportunity for runners of all abilities to 'get off the road' and challenge themselves on wide open trails that take in sweeping views of Canberra, Black Mountain Tower, the National Arboretum, and the Brindabella ranges.
SRF proudly supports the Indigenous Marathon Foundation. Help us reach our $10,000 goal by making a donation at time of registration.
