Yes after 31 years of long distance running events in the Barossa Valley, its the big one.  It may evolve over time into a "Marathon du Medoc" style event, depending upon runners and sponsors' responses.

What great news! Congrats SARRC. Will be a Bit too soon after Ironman Australia for me this year, but this will definitely be on my 'to do' list as I have family in the Barossa & love the area. I recall doing the 10k event a few years ago... 'tWas *chilly* to say the least!

All the best for the inaugural Barossa 42.2.

Awesome!! did the half there a few years ago and met the CR locals who kindly picked me up from ADL.

What i remember well, apart from running it one leg injured, was being overtaken by a race walker when i was doing 4:40min k's... that and counting the vines in that perfectly square block :-) (see course map)

Won't manage it this year due to other travel commitments but will become a goal race guaranteed... great work SARRC!!

I've done Medoc... so, what can the Barossa do for Aus running?  We need wine stations, jambon (ok... let's settle for a pig on a spit..) station, lamingtons, pavs, this could be the start of something beautiful... How many wineries will get behind this? Can the winner's prize be their weight in wine like Medoc?? South Australia, this is your time to shine!

marathon will be flat as a pancake.

half has a 40m vertical gain hill over 1.5km at the turn around. Hardly anything. dropped my pace by 15 sec/km and I made it up on the way down. great course for a half. about 4 min faster on the return trip.

I do not plan to do the full marathon this year but will be running my fifth Barossa HM.  Hopefully this gives me an almost ledgend tee shirt.

Choices! I'm halfway to becoming a Barossa Legend, but the inaugural marathon hmmmm...

The marathon it is!

Will they be starting some sort of "Legend" prize for ten Barossa marathons?

Looks like a lot more half marathon results have come to hand. Time for an update I think. The half marathon was first run in 1984, not 1985 as stated on the Barossa Marathon page.

The "legend" and "almost-legend" was a good idea at the time (1990s), but with the event now having been held for 30 years (it wasn't held in 1985), to be called an "almost-legend" after just five events seems silly.

I'm afraid I didn't start with enough time to complete this marathon properly... at the moment I am going to sign for the Gold Cost Marathon... but for sure I'm going to be in one the races in Barrossa.

Arfa,
I'm thinking the same but I haven't signed up yet.  I'll wait and see how I go in Canberra in 2 weeks then think about it.
SMH Half is the week before Barossa and I will run the SMH hard so Barossa will probably be a back of the pack job.  
The good thing about it being the first is that I can run any time inside the cutoff and still call it a PB for this race.
Might see you at the finish if you wait around long enough.

I've signed up. Now, to the logistics of coming from Sydney. Locals, can you please advise the best plan for a single runner travelling to this race? Should I stay overnight near the airport and just head down in the morning? Iis there a bus to Tanunda from Adelaide? I'm a little worried about driving by myself in a new place. Or am I better to try to find some accommodation in Tanunda (btw, do the race start and finish in the same place?)? Whatever advice anyone could offer would be much appreciated. Happy to offer help with logistics in Sydney in return! :)

I'm still undecided about the marathon, but will probably end up doing it because it's the first one.

To answer PinkSkirt's questions, you will need to be at or near Tanunda the night before the event. Tanunda is about 90 minutes to two hours drive from the airport. Here is a bus timetable from the Central Bus station in the city to the Barossa Valley.  http://www.railmaps....RouteSelect=496

Although it says "railmaps" there is no passenger rail service.

There is a motel near the Airport if you are arriving Friday.

The race does start and finish in the same place.

I'd be booking accommodation right now as I suspect it will sell out.

Getting back to the airport - you can probably get a lift with someone afterwards as many people doing one of the events will be from that part of Adelaide.

Great to see people coming from interstate to do this.

Thanks for all of the info, Crowpower. I've gone ahead and booked everything. Turns out to be way less expensive to book a hire car than rely on getting an airport shuttle and then the bus - plus it's more flexible, especially with weekend schedules. I'll just have to remember to bring my GPS and leave myself lots of extra time to get lost! If anyone else from interstate needs a ride to/from the airport, please message me and we can coordinate. Very much looking forward to this, and thanks again for the help. I love South Australians! You all are so hospitable!

Hey PinkSkirt,

Would love a ride. I've sent you a message.

On another unrelated matter - I received my race bib in the post today and it lists me as a marathon 'walker', despite the fact that I selected runner when applying. Has anybody else had this problem (if it is a problem)?

I shall ring them over the next few days.

Best of luck with your training everyone.

My bib had my age wrong, into the next age bracket.   Very helpful when I phoned.   They'll sort it out, there and then, but not send a new bib.

Rang them - it was an error but they sorted it out immediately and are sending a new bib.

Hi guys,

Doing the Barossa HM and would like some info from people who have run in it before. How many drink stops are there and do they hand out any gels during the race? I would assume not. I did a 20:32 for 5km when I was 15, should I expect to get under 1;45 for the HM? I have never run anything above 10km and only decided to enter 2 weeks ago. My training has literally been 2 10km runs in the last week, should be ok though????

I cannot remember how many drink stations there were last year but at the recent Greenbelt marathon there were 3, roughly one every 5 km.  I would expect something like this again.  As for an expected time I run 30 minutes for the 5 km and expect to take between 2:15 and 2:30 for the Barossa HM.

I entered the Barossa Marathon after a successful repeat of the Cleland Trail run two weeks ago, after having dropped out of the actual event. This morning I got off my backside and did a dreaded "20 miler", something I've avoided as a training run for nearly 20 years. This was along the Greenbelt Half linear park course, starting near the Hackney bridge and turning around just past the finish of Yurrebilla at Athelstone. My time for the 33km was 2:52, so I ought to do the marathon under 4 hours.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mums. I saw a lot of them along the linear park. Sadly, one mum I know, Tracy, lost her son (and only child) in a car accident three weeks ago. I couldn't help thinking of her and her parents because I used to coach the son in cricket and football at primary school and they were great and helpful supporters. My own son of the same age was in those teams.

Mumma Treason - hope you have recovered sufficiently to be on the starting line. See you there!

I'll definitely be there crowpower but also definitely underdone. I totally underestimated the effect that surgery has on the body. Am running ok but will definitely get my money's worth on the 27th.

It's probably not very clever but I signed up for the Marathon next Sunday.

The legs are still complaining from yesterdays SMH Half but a week to recover, NO PROBLEMS!

Will probably just do a walk, run, walk so the early start for me this time.  Anyone near the back of the pack want some company?

If today is anything to go by, it will be very slow.  Have a good case of DOMS with the calves.

Should be better by the weekend.  The brain is saying, I'm not in the ballpark for a good time so any finish will do.  It's still a PB for a Barossa Marathon.  Will probably just run-walk more like the Sunday Trail runs.  Maybe a finish somewhere between 4:30 and 5 hours.

Tracy,
Most likely it will only be light or intermittent rain so just wear your normal running clothes.  Once you are running, you are usually warm enough and the rain is more of a refreshment than anything else.  Just make sure you have some warm and dry clothes that you can change into at the end.  Make sure you also have spare shoes and socks!  If the forecast for the day is really bad I might take a light backpack and carry a rain jacket for use if needed.  The breathable ones are the best but even the cheap ones keep you dry and protect from the wind.  On the bad days its usually the wind that makes the bit of moisture uncomfortable.  
Good luck on Sunday.

Thank you for the tips Wedgetail. I bought a light weight cheap rain jacket from Kmart today and a long sleeved shirt to layer over my tshirt.
I'm arriving the day before so I can get a peak at some of the course. I'm hoping the motel will let me have a late checkout so I can get a hot shower after the run before driving home.
This will be only my second half and I've had tendinitis in my ankle so my training hasn't been ideal, I've also come down with a cold! Im just aiming to finish, have some fun and have no expectation of beating my time.
I'm really looking forward to a night away from the family and some me time.
Before I started running I thought of runners being super beings, with amazing fitness. Now I know they come in all shapes, ages and sizes. I've become addicted, knowing I don't have to be the best, just the best I can be.

Before I started running I thought of runners being super beings, with amazing fitness. Now I know they come in all shapes, ages and sizes. I've become addicted, knowing I don't have to be the best, just the best I can be.

I love this attitude Tracy.  It appears that we run at a similar pace so I suspect that we will see one another on Sunday.  Look out for the grey beard under the cool running hat.

Best of luck for a great run everyone.

I too am feeling a little underdone but I'm looking forward to Sunday.  I'm glad the weather will be cool, I don't mind the rain but wind is horrible.

Am feeling a little anxious as have decided to push myself somewhat in this run.  The worst that can happen is that I blow up and then really know what my current limits are... the best is that I might just surprise myself.  Either way will be a useful experience though to find a bit more pace in these legs would be kinda nice :Praying:

Happy running :Star:

You're feeling anxious!!! I've just worked out that the walkers need to walk at 8 min per km before they're asked to leave the course !!! On a good day
I could do this but because of the surgery on my broken wrist it's knocked me about a bit so was hoping for the luxury of that extra half hour. Oh well
shit happens!! Just have to do what I can. See you all there and have a good run. :Sigh:
