Now we have the Pub2Pub 26k run/walk and the Pub2Pub Trail Marathon followed by the FIAAI 5. The festival is still very much a community weekend encouraging as many people to participate at any speed, pace or gait they please. For many local families it's a way of getting together and celebrating Father's Day.
