Temporary Road Closures

*Please note: The National Capital Authority (NCA) will be enforcing parking regulations for the duration of the event due to concerns for public safety including Running Festival participants, pedestrians and cyclists alike, as well as the need to protect Open Space. The NCA encourages the public to park legally to avoid the risk of being issued an infringement notice as it is an offence under the National Land (Road Transport) Ordinance 2014 to park a vehicle on Open Space such as footpaths, grassed and landscaped areas.

There is ample parking within walking distance to the race start and finish area. For more information regarding parking for the event, please visit: www.runningfestival.com.au/traffic-transport/
