With less than two weeks to go before registrations close, organisers are anticipating records will be broken both on the track and at the registration tent.

With five different race categories on offer, whether you are a family wanting to get active, a recreational runner looking for a social run or an elite athlete trying to beat your best time, the Western Sydney Marathon is a running festival suited to runners of all abilities.

Race ambassadors and 2018 winners Brendan Davies from Woodford and Leigha Wills from Winmalee, have been in training for the event and hope to see race records tumble.

"I started running two and a half years ago as a challenge and Western Sydney Marathon was my fifth marathon in 11 months," Wills said.

"I can't wait to run the Western Sydney Marathon again and highly recommend the event to anyone thinking of doing a marathon."

"It's been great to see the numbers continue to grow with inclusivity and participation being the driving force," Davies said.

"Fees are kept low and there's an event for everyone at any stage of their distance running journey."

Western Sydney Marathon is held at the Sydney International Regatta Centre in Penrith and offers a 2km Youth Dash for the kids, a 5km and 10km social run plus a half and full marathon for the distance runners.

There will be a health and fitness expo, live entertainment, inflatable obstacle course, children's activities and post-race massage and physio.
