ALPINE EDGE MARATHON

Be a part of one of Regional Victoria’s longest running marathons. This three lap course weaves its way through the natural beauty of the Red Gum forest as it follows the Goulburn and Broken Rivers. You will run along the sealed, shared pathway network and loop back towards the picturesque Victoria Park Lake precinct.

This course is known to be flat and fast so it is ideal for the first time marathon entrant or those looking for a PB.

This event is presented by Alpine Edge Shepparton
