2019 Newcastle International Half Marathon


AustCham, in partnership with Takungpao.com, invites you to attend the “2019 Newcastle International Half Marathon”on 6th October, 2019. This event will feature a 21km run along the stunning coast of Newcastle-just north of Sydney-in New South Wales, Australia.


Newcastle is a beautiful coastal city in north New South Wales. It is approximately two hours north of Sydney, NSW with a population of almost half a million people. Lonely Planet has rated Newcastle a “top city for travel”, it has four times been named a “world festival & events city” by the International Festivals & Events Association and Global magazine National Geographic Traveler named Newcastle one of the world’s top ‘Smart Cities’ to watch in 2017.


The evening before the marathon commences, we will host a gala dinner with government officials to welcome the runners. On the day of the competition, we will also hold a 4-6 km fun run as well as some activities for parents and their children to enjoy together. Through participating in these events, those of you who are not professional marathon runners, or even those who have kids to look after are sure to be able to get in on some of the action! It is a great opportunity to make some wonderful memories and to spice up your social media!
