This February the Wangaratta Marathon and Fun Runs will be on again. The start and finishes will be at the Wangaratta Showgrounds.
As always there will be marathon and half marathon courses. The beautiful tree-lined courses will again be adjacent to rivers and creeks. All kids will receive finishers medals and for the community teams a new perpetual trophy is up for grabs.
This year there will be a common start line for all events. Prize money will be included for the half marathon. The ten kilometre, five kilometre and two kilometre courses will also include some beautiful unsealed river sections and reduce any likelihood of congestion.
The event will offer low entry fees as always plus the opportunity for everyone to commit to the event early at super value prices. There will however be no on the day entries, but more opportunity to enter at public registration days. On top of that field limits will apply in the in the ten kilometre, five kilometre and two kilometre courses with only 1000 places in each.
This year there will be no date or venue clash with the AFL.
