The Hobart Airport Marathon Festival is gearing up for a spectacular third edition, with record-breaking numbers expected at the event. With over 2500 participants anticipated, including a significant contingent of 1000 attendees traveling from interstate, this year's festival promises to be the biggest yet. 

Event Director Jason Crowther expressed his enthusiasm for the overwhelming response, citing a substantial increase in participant numbers compared to previous years. "We're thrilled to see such tremendous interest in the Hobart Airport Marathon Festival. The growing enthusiasm highlights the event's reputation as a must-attend occasion for both seasoned athletes and recreational runners alike," remarked Crowther. 

The festival's success can be attributed not only to its growing popularity but also to the ideal running conditions and breathtaking course. Participants can expect a picturesque route, featuring stunning views of Hobart's iconic landmarks, including Constitution Dock, the Derwent River, and Salamanca Wharves. The combination of scenery and an exceptional venue at Constitution Dock creates an unforgettable experience for all involved. 

Beyond the thrill of the race, the Hobart Airport Marathon Festival serves as a significant economic driver for the local community. With projections indicating a return of over $1 million to the Hobart economy, the event contributes substantially to the region's prosperity. 

"We are proud to play a role in supporting the local economy while providing a platform for athletes to showcase their talent and determination. The Hobart Airport Marathon Festival is not just a race; it's a celebration of sport and camaraderie, supporting community, charity and the spirit of Tasmania," added Crowther. 

As the countdown to the festival begins, there is a growing excitment among participants, volunteers, and spectators alike. Whether aiming for a personal best or soaking in the vibrant atmosphere, the Hobart Airport Marathon Festival promises an unforgettable experience for all involved.
