The Marysville Marathon Festival is Victoria's waterfall run, nestled in the beautiful Yarra Ranges at the foot of the Lake Mountain snow fields. A community event with the best feel good atmosphere you will experience. In 2024, most events are held on Sunday 10th November, but several take place on Saturday 9th November.
Created to ensure the township and communities around Marysville were supported through the recovery process from the Black Saturday Fires, this festival has continued to provide amazing support and has played a key role in ensuring the town continues to flourish.
This is a trail running festival that caters for all levels, taking you to the amazing Steavenson Falls and along fern lined trails. Big climbs wait the longer distances runners, yet the rewards are worth the effort with spectacular vistas to take in.
Local volunteers are a key to the success of the event and are rewarded with fundraising to their clubs and the awesome experience of interacting with grateful runners.
