Tomorrow will see over 1,200 runners, joggers and walkers of all ages and abilities make their way around the Coffs Creek for the annual Bendigo Bank Coffs Harbour Running Festival.

And for those planning on taking part but are yet to sign up, late entries are available at the Coffs Harbour Showground today (Saturday) between 2pm and 4pm.  No late entries will be taken on race day.

Elite athletes, school students, families, groups of friends and businesses, will all be out and about dressed in their active wear to join in the fun and make their way around the Coffs Creek for one or more of the events on offer.

Marathon legend and event ambassador, Steve Moneghetti will also be out for a run and is participating in all four events. He loves taking part in community events and chatting to the competitors of all abilities, offering tips and sharing is wealth of knowledge.

The event offers more than just fun runs and walks, with some fantastic prizes up for grabs for all participants including Brooks Running Shoes, Genesis gym memberships, Treetops Adventure vouchers, accommodation packages and more.

There are also massages courtesy of Coffs Coast Sports Physiotherapy, free face painting for the kids, sporting goods and delicious food, drink and ice cream all available in the event village.

The first event of the day is the Mike Blewitt 10km fun run, starting at 7.00am, followed by the Beachside Radiology half marathon at 7.30am, the Southern Cross University 5km fun run/walk at 9.30am and the Key Employment 3km family fun run at 10.20am. Organisers urge participants to arrive in plenty of time for their race start.

All events take in the stunning Coffs Creek Walkway and proceeds help support Life Education, Coffs Coast Autism, Camp Quality and Early Connections whose volunteers will be manning the drink stations and encouraging the runners as they pass by.

Presentations for placegetters and random prize draws will be conducted from 11am.

Late entries for the event are available today (Saturday) only at the Showground between 2pm and 4pm, with no entries on race day. For those already entered, race numbers can also be collected during this time and from 5.45am on Sunday morning.

Event parking is available on Sunday around the Coffs St Olympic Pool area, Castle St multi level car park and Marcia Street (behind the council depot).
