Independent Runner Events

Gloucester (NSW) is the new home of multiday long-distance running events in Australia. Our events offer runners the opportunity to test themselves with 2-in-2-days, 3-in-3-days, 4-in-3-days options right up to 10-in-10-days! These unique physical challenges are a test even for the most experienced multiple marathon & ultramarathon runners.

Events are held in the scenic rural New South Wales town of Gloucester, under the beautiful backdrop provided by the Bucketts Mountains. The course is a 3.516km undulating out & back loop run multiple times to complete the race distance with an aid station at the start / finish line where runners can store their personal gear as well as nutrition / hydration suppies for easy access each lap.

Race headquarters is the Bill Maslin Dairy Judging Pavillion inside the Gloucester Showgrounds. Facilities offered by the venue include camping areas, toilets & shower blocks, undercover areas & the beautiful country NSW views.


We offer boutique running events in unique locations around NSW for marathon runners from beginners to veterans. Please contact us to discuss bringing our event to your home town.


I'm passionate about running, fitness and health. I want people to come along to have fun with me at these marathon events.


I want to bring marathon running to my home town of Gloucester to show off this beautiful region. A portion of each event entry fee will be donated to a worthwhile charity in the local communities in which we run.

Located just under two hours north of Newcastle, and three and a half from Sydney, Gloucester is also accessible by rail by the Central to Brisbane Trainlink service.
