RACV Marysville Marathon Festival, November 12, 2017

Author:   Dr. Lachlan Fraser, Race Patron

The ninth annual Marysville Marathon Festival will be run on November 12, featuring events for runners of four, ten, twenty-one, forty-two and fifty 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 ten to fifty kilometres.  Our drinking water has been judged Australia’s best!  Well-stocked aid stations sustain the participants, and all finishers receive a medallion and showbag.  Placegetters are well rewarded and there are plenty of random prizes.  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 the band Coolgrass.

Started as a bushfire recovery project, the event is amongst the most enjoyable on Australia’s running calendar, for those who go the distance and for the volunteers who support them.  Stay the night before and join us for a pre-race dinner.  Fundraising supports nearly twenty community groups through their volunteers, as well as CFA, SES, Bushfire Education Foundation (Marysville) and Canteen, assisting young people living with cancer.  We could still use some more help from volunteers, registrations via the website.

Leave behind the bitumen and enjoy the open space.  Come and see why people keep returning year after year!
