Yes, that's right. We have moved the 2023 event to a SATURDAY. This will coincide with the Heathcote Market and provide a fantastic atmosphere in and around the township for athletes, their families and locals alike.

The marathon will be an out-and-back!
Starting and finishing in Heathcote, the marathon runners will travel out along the O'Keefe Rail Trail to the Knowsley Forest before returning to Heathcote to finish on Barrack Reserve. The marathon will also begin 30 minutes later than usual. The Marathon has remaining unchanged since it's first edition in 2015 and we felt as a committee it was time for a fresh take

The Ekiden Relay moves to six legs from seven.
The full 42.2km Ekiden Relay will now become a six leg relay rather than a seven. Athletes will still change at the existing aid stations and there'll be a range of distances on offer to include everyone.

Registrations are open.
Early birds finish at midnight on 31st January.
That's plenty of time to choose your challenge and set your sights on a fabulous weekend away in May in Heathcote supporting the Heathcote Dementia Alliance.
