Festival Sprint

Ever wondered how long it takes you to run 30m? Race your friends, climb the leader board and record your time at the Athletics ACT Sprint Zone. Participation is completely free, making it a great way to pass time for spectators and kids during and after the event.
London Olympian Ben Offereins will be stepping up to set the pace - do you have what it takes to beat the best in the business? Bragging rights and spot prizes are on offer throughout the day!


On Saturday, Amber Nichols from The Voice will be serenading you with an impressive array of originals and covers. Following her will be Pambula Beach's Jack Biilmann, and Sunday's live music will be provided by Russell Vincent.
