The 65th Macksville Gift

Gillett Oval Macksville NSW

Friday, November 9, 2018 6:00pm to Saturday, November 10, 2018 9:00pm

The Macksville Gift, is the longest Continuous Foot Race in NSW. This year it celebrates 65 Years of providing an Athletic Foot race for our Valley,

which sees competitors come from Victoria, Queensland and all over NSW to participate.


We celebrate the day, with our Gift Princesses, a street parade, local involvement, including races, The famous Banana Hurl and fire works to

announce the Gift participants.

What makes a Gift different from the pro races is each runner is handicapped which makes the ending very close.

The Gift has been providing funds for many years for example the Macksville Hospital, building the memorial pool and providing funds for the Nambucca Valley.

Celebratory Dinner 6:00pm at Macksville ExServices.
