runHub & other events

The runHub is more than just a start-finish line and some tents – it is a place for runners, their supporters, volunteers and the local community, to connect and to hear and share stories about kunanyi and the people who have lived around it.

All runs (except the VK) will start and finish at the runHub in Wellesley Park, South Hobart, which is (almost) a stone's throw from Cascade Brewery. You can get there by taking the meandering rivulet track (by foot or bike) from the city, or catch public transport. If you do have to drive, all runHub parking is on the Cascade Paddocks.

As the name suggests, the runHub, is the hub for all things running and here you will:

  • Mandatory gear check – required prior to picking up your race number
  • Register for your event and pick up your race pack and race number
  • Mandatory race briefings
  • Access to first aid and toilets
  • Race presentations

The runHub will enjoy some ambient music and MC, and enjoys an excellent view of kunanyi, which you can take in while enjoying hearty food and drinks that will be available to buy. It's planned to be licenced and will feature some classic Tasmanian beverages.

There is also a cool hangout and recovery area, complete with fire pits. There's a playground and the park is dog-friendly, so support crew can bring the kids and the pups out for an adventure!

We’ll have plenty of other activities running through the days to keep everyone occupied, including:

  • Intro to trail running sessions for everyone – including kids (with parents) and City of Hobart’s trailRiders – which are all-terrain, electric wheelchairs (more info here)
  • Expo with lots of great trail running gear and other stalls
  • Immersive Aboriginal cultural activities
  • Plenty more to be announced!
