MARATHON en­thu­si­asts are set to be in full stride this month for the Black­town Run­ning Fes­ti­val.

The four-race event will get un­der­way from Black­town In­ter­na­tional Sportspark, in Rooty Hill, on July 26.

It is the first year the event will start and fin­ish at the venue.

Whether it is the gru­elling chal­lenge of the full length 42km marathon, the 21km half-marathon, 10km fun run or 4km fun run, there is some­thing for all lev­els.

Bar­bara Sell­wood said she couldn’t wait to take part in the event again, al­beit not in her usual dis­tance.

“The run­ning fes­ti­val is al­ways a great day,” she said. “This year I am car­ry­ing a bit of an in­jury so I can only take part in the 4km walk but it will still be great to take part and get out there with all the other run­ners.”
