The 2018 Bush Capital Bush Marathon Festival is an exciting 2-day off road running and bush walking event from the centre of Canberra in Mt Ainslie and Mt Majura nature reserves. The events are fully off road, nearly all on wellmaintained management trails in the nature reserves. The major goal is to offer a very enjoyable running or walking experience for all participants.
The secondary goal is to raise funds to assist the Australian Mountain Running Team. Each year members of the team have to self finance up to $4,000 each to represent Australia at world mountain running championships in Europe.
The support of the ACT Parks and Conservation Service is greatly appreciated in providing access to some of the most beautiful areas of Canberra’s nature reserves, and to Campbell High School for the race start and finish and school facilities.
