The Harry Potter inspired five-kilometre run is set to take place in Australian capital cities this winter and we can’t wait!

If you are a Harry Potter fanatic and love exercise, then this event is a match made in heaven. A wizard themed 5km run is heading to capital cities around Australia, and while organisers say that the run is not affiliated with the popular series, we have no doubt where participants will take their race day outfit inspiration from. The Wizard’s Run is the latest creation of the same crew behind the Disney Brunch so it’s definitely an event you won’t want to miss!

Get Your Broomsticks Ready

Details of the August fun runs remain scarce, but it is rumoured that the best-dressed participants on the day will be in the running to win some theme-appropriate items. Those behind the event say it is much more than just a 5K, with a selection of fun activities and magical entertainment to enjoy along the way including a ‘Quidditch’ match! Like any fun run, we can only assume that all ages can get involved so if you’re planning to attend with your partner and kids in tow, the Weasley family (or perhaps the Malfoys) could make a super cute costume option.

This is definitely a fun run with a little extra fun, and we can’t wait to see what the day involves! Sign up to The Wizard’s Run website for all the latest updates.

  • Sounds like a lot of fun and a healthy activity. Harry Potter is so popular with people.


  • The words fun and run are two words that I would never put together! Lol. Running is not my idea of fun


  • I’ll be keeping my eye out for it coming to hobart, but I’m not holding my breath


  • I’m not interested in this, cheers.


  • I don’t think there is one in Adelaide. It could be arranged in such a way to be a fundraiser for a medical based charity that receives no Govt. assistance at all


  • What more could you want. Fun, fantasy and fitness combined in the one race. Woohoo.


  • Might be hard to run in dress up clothes.


  • I’ve never thought of running as ‘fun’ but I’m such a big Harry Potter fan I’d actually think about giving this a go!


  • My daughter would love this.


  • Lol maybe it’d even interest my hubby in sport!


  • How awesome! We would love this. We recently did a 10km fun run as a family, so 5km would certainly be easier, especially if it has a theme. I’m signed up for updates.


  • I’m not a Fun Run or a Harry Potter fan but… a fantastic idea for those who are.


  • This is a great idea for movie buffs and book worms who may not be the sporty type.


  • What a fun idea and a great way to stay healthy!


  • good idea
