Adventure Fun Run – 5km


Sun 22nd, Oct



Start Time


Looking for the right challenge for you at AAF?

Our 5KM & 10KM Run/Walk offers a taste of adventure and the chance to get on the trails around Lakes Entrance. Taking part in the AAF weekend, you can share in this experience with others, or you can cheer them on from the sidelines.

The Course



Following the race briefing at 9.30am, Fitness4U Lakes Entrance will take competitors through a high energy warm up to get you pumped for the run!

The 5km run/walk departs from the Australian Adventure Festival Event Village on the Lakes Entrance Foreshore.

The course takes competitors across the Cunninghame Arm footbridge toward the Entrance. Keep an eye out for seals, dolphins and Lakes fishing boats passing through the Entrance.

The course winds back to the finish line on the foreshore.

NOTE: the terrain of the 5km course is not suitable for prams. Parents with prams may opt to take an alternative route which heads east toward Eastern Beach around the Eastern Beach Caravan Park. This route is part of the 10km course. Please let the race staff know on the day if you would prefer to take the alternative 5km course.

Signage and course volunteers will be on course to direct runners and walkers.
