Hamilton Hilly Marathon

Sunday 1 May 2016

This year will be double the fun as we celebrate our 10th anniversary of the Hilly Half with a new marathon option! All the fabled hills remain; and whilst the half marathon may still be the choice of many, for the ultimate endurance challenge; take on the Hamilton Island Hilly Marathon. Two loops, the first in the reverse direction on our storied half marathon course, will see you rack up the km’s to be part of a select group of marathoners* to complete the inaugural race. There’s a race for everyone; the marathon for the fearless, a half marathon, a 3 x 7km relay and the kids haven’t been forgotten either with three different distance options for them over a much-kinder, flat and fast marina course.

Plus, to help you get race ready, Find Your Feet, along with Champion Marathon Athlete Hanny Allston, have developed training plans which are free to download, meaning you can be best prepared for the challenge!

"Probably the most scenic marathon run in Australia………BUT also one of the toughest” Steve Moneghetti, Champion Marathon Runner, Commonwealth Games Gold medallist.

*Qualification required; a sub 4:30 road marathon or sub-2:45 Hamilton Island Hilly Half Marathon
