Plans are afoot to base a running festival in Kiama, with the main event of the day being a 15km run along the coast from Gerringong to Kiama. Elite Energy, which organises a number of triathalons along the NSW coast, plans to market it as the most scenic run in Australia.
The Kiama Coastal Classic Running Festival would be held on Sunday 31 July, so there is still time to get into training. Apart from the 15km run,there would also be a 2.5km run and a 10km run.
The event has the potential to bring people into the area over the long winter months, and encourage repeat visitation.
