The B&E Tasmanian Running Festival featuring the B&E Launceston Ten, kicks off right in the heart of Launceston, below the town clock, before winding out of the city and following an almost straight course out and back. This course is great for beginner runners and more advanced athletes alike.
The 2016 event was held on Sunday, June 12.
