The Ross Running Festival is a unique event which runs across the iconic Ross Bridge and around the outskirts of the historic township of Ross, finishing along the main street to the claps and cheers of the locals. 

With a relatively flat course and relaxed atmosphere, the Ross Running Festival is a perfect event for those taking on a marathon or half marathon for the first time, with runners receiving plenty of support on each lap of the 10.5km course.


If a shorter event is what you prefer, there’s 5km & 10km events available, and for those wanting to really soak up the atmosphere and beauty of the town, there’s a walk option for both.


For the younger runners there’s the Ross Runner’s 2.5km Kids Race with the proceeds donated to the Just Like Jack organisation.


The event is organised by a volunteer committee in conjunction with local volunteers and the following community groups;

Ross Anglers Club
Ross Volunteer Fire Brigade
Northern Midlands SES
Plus a host of local individuals who are dedicated to seeing the event continue.
