1000km For Wildlife's thoughts:

I ran the 10.3km event in the Winery Running Festival on July 20, 2014. This is a great event that has something for every runner no matter what your ability is. There is a 2km for the kids, 5km, 10.3km, half marathon, full marathon and a 52.5km ultra marathon. This isn't a big event like some running festivals out there, the cut off is around 3,500 runners but the scenery is great and so much fun.

You can collect your race pack the day before the event but I chose to collect mine on the morning of the event. I arrived a bit early because I was worried about parking and collecting my pack, but collection took no time at all and was flawless. I collected my race bib and free t-shirt and headed to the start line. The start area had the usual running vendors and a few food vendors. There is a hill towards the start that is somewhat challenging but then you rewarded with a downhill run through the wineries!! The scenery for this event is beautiful through the hills and wineries of the Hunter Valley. After crossing the finish line you get a pretty cool medal to add to the collection.

Overall this was a great event and well organised. I would definitely recommend the event and I am looking forward to trying the half marathon next time!!
