The flat, country roads of Ellesmere make the ideal course for athletes from all walks of life to put their training to the test. The Ellesmere locals welcome all entrants and get out en masse to show their support. They will be the ones encouraging every athlete on their journey through the countryside.
Anderson Square, Leeston, plays host to the post-race festivities. Live music, plenty of food and beverage options and the green grass are the ideal way to bask in post-race glory.
With four race distances, walk, hybrid and run categories, and individual and team options, this quintessential country festival is right for everyone. All races are electronically timed and the certified half marathon course even incorporates the Athletics Canterbury Championship. So get your friends, family, workmates and neighbours together and be part of Selwyn’s favourite running festival.
