The Bunbury 3 Waters Running Festival run on 28th August 2022 was our 40th Bunbury Marathon. The course is designed to showcase Bunbury’s natural assets. It is called the Bunbury 3 Waters Running Festival because it takes in the Leschenault Inlet, Koombana Bay and the Indian Ocean. For good measure we’re including the Bunbury Big Swamp a well.

Bib pick up, race start and all the weekend activities took place at the Bunbury Recreation ground. (Cnr Ocean Drive and Symmonds St)

It is our mission to give you the best running event experience possible so that it will create a happy memory that will last and keep you coming back to Bunbury and Bunbury Runners Club events in future years. Our running festival is not a profit generating event for Bunbury Runners Club. The fees and sponsorship moneys are all invested in creating value for participants.
