South Australian Road Runners Club (SARRC) will once again hold the McLaren Vale Running Festival on the Fleurieu Peninsula on Sunday, October 18.

The South Australian Road Runners Club is a not-for-profit member-based organisation that has been supporting runners and providing running events across the state for more than 40 years.

The year 2020 has been a disrupted and uncertain, with nothing running to schedule in this COVID year.

Through a lot of work, SARRC was successful to get the Adelaide Marathon up and running, which was a tremendous success.

A spokesperson for SARRC said approval has now been given to go ahead with other SARRC planned events for this year.

"SARRC is excited to announce that one of their most popular destination events, the McLaren Vale Running Festival, will proceed under a COVID-Safe Plan (maximum 1000 participants) on Sunday, October 18, between 7.30am and 11.30am, starting and finishing at Hardys Tintara," the spokesperson said.

"Registrations are still open on line until Thursday midnight or available on the morning of the race."

The McLaren Vale Running Festival 2020 is held in one of South Australia's best-kept secrets. The half marathon course takes in the Shiraz Trail between McLaren Vale and Willunga, with a loop along the rail trail between McLaren Vale and Seaford.

Due to the late approval for this event there is always a need for volunteers. To assist please contact email: office@sarrc.asn.au
