The Mornington Running Festival is in its fourth year, it attracts participants from all over Australia and consists of a 5km Run/Walk, 10km Run, 21.1km Half Marathon and a Kids 1km Dash, raising money for event charity partner beyondblue. This event will deliver a major economic benefit to the area and we are excited to be able to share this with the Mornington Peninsula local community. Detailed maps and information can be viewed on the website.

ONE LANE ONLY of the Esplanade will be closed (Northbound - beach side) between Main St (Mornington) and Bruce Rd (Mt Martha) on Sunday 24 September 2017. Southbound traffic will not be affected during this time other than a reduced speed zone.
Stage 1 - Bruce Rd – Coolangatta Rd will be closed from approx.. 6:30am – 10:30am (21km runners)
Stage 2 Coolangatta Rd – Main St will be closed from approx. 6:30am – 11:30am (10km and 5km Runners)

Access out of properties onto the Esplanade will be by turning left onto The Esplanade. To re-enter your property during these closure times you must turn onto The Esplanade via a northern street/road and turn left onto The Esplanade and head South to your property entrance.  Traffic controllers and volunteers will be present at all times to assist pedestrians and residents if and when required.

We encourage local residents and businesses to show their support to participants, so join us at Mornington Park and cheer on participants as they complete this fun run and aim to raise money for beyondblue.
