Marathon director John Craven predicted that the ninth annual Great Ocean Road Marathon festival would be the best and most enjoyable since its foundation in 2005.
“The Early Bird response was overwhelming,” Craven said. “I wish to sincerely thank Mizuno for putting up great prizes.” Mizuno is a tremendous sponsor of the marathon festival, also taking naming rights to the opening event, the 6Km Apollo Bay – Marengo race.”
Entries for most events at the festival close on Monday, May 6.
A popular event for children is the Kids’ Gallop.
This year we welcome Vetta Pasta as naming sponsor, and thank them for providing the delicious pasta for the Pasta Night.
Entries for the 1.5km Vetta Pasta Kids’ Gallop in Apollo Bay on Saturday, May 18, will be taken on the morning of the event.
Kids’ Gallop proceeds will assist the Apollo Bay Hospital.
Compared with most other major international marathons, Great Ocean Road Marathon entry fees continue to offer marvellous value on one of the world’s most breathtaking courses.
We welcome your entries and look forward to seeing you on the road, and good luck with your preparation.
