RACV Marysville Marathon - 12 November 2017
The ninth annual RACV Marysville Marathon Festival will be run on November 12, featuring events for runners of four, 10, 21, 42 and 50 kilometres. Walkers can enjoy the shorter distances. The course is mainly on trails in the beautiful forest and hills of Marysville, alongside the Steavenson and Taggerty Rivers. Steavenson Falls is the highlight for those covering from 10 to 50 kilometres. The Start-Finish area is at Gallipoli Park, Marysville, with food, drinks, runner’s gear for sale, children’s entertainment and live bluegrass music with Coolgrass.
Started as a bushfire recovery project, the event is among the most enjoyable on Australia’s running calendar, for those who go the distance and for the volunteers who support them. Fundraising supports nearly 20 community groups through their volunteers, as well as CFA, SES, Bushfire Education Foundation (Marysville) and Canteen, assisting young people living with cancer. Leave behind the bitumen and enjoy the open space. Come and see why people keep returning year after year!
