LOGAN RUNNING FESTIVAL
The Logan Running Festival is the brainchild of former NRL player and Crestmead resident, Mark Tookey.
After having raced in various fun runs, triathlons and ultimately marathons, Mark began planning Logan's very first marathon, to be staged at the tranquil Berrinba Wetlands.
Mark had three main goals for the Logan Running Festival -
1. Affordable for everyone
2. Category for everyone with a 9 hour time limit to complete the full marathon
3. The event to include music, food and fun - a real party atmosphere!
This will not be your typical marathon however. The Berrinba Wetlands route is a little over 5 kilometres, so in order to complete the half and full marathons, competitors will be running laps of the circuit and surrounds. Every competitor will have a timing chip inserted into their unique racing numberplate bib, which you will design yourself. Your racing bib will become unique to you, and therefore a special memento for you to keep.
At the end of each completed lap, competitors will receive a specially designed wristband to wear, so as to keep track of your completed laps.
