The Traralgon Marathon is Australia's oldest marathon and features a marathon, half marathon and 10km events.

The Traralgon Marathon is the oldest current marathon in Australia and was first run on 24 August in 1968.

The race was an all male affair and was won by Barry Sawyer in 2:26:53. Beginning in Traralgon at the Traralgon Recreation Reserve (aka Traralgon Football Ground), the marathon course heads north through Victory Park and some of the traditional streets in Traralgon, then incorporates the Gippsland Plains Rail Trail on the which take you to the turn around point at Toongabbie.

Enjoy the serenity of farms and bush and a very well maintained surface on the rail trail. The rail trail was incorporated at the request of participants to reduce the interaction with traffic on the open road. The new course includes a number of excellent areas where supporters can cheer you on. There are some straight stretches and a short, but challenging, rise with several kilometres remaining.

Well known runners have made appearances at Traralgon, with boxer Johnny Famechon, ultramarathon legend Cliff Young and former world marathon record holder Derek Clayton, all toeing the start line in the past. Clayton continues to hold the Traralgon Marathon race record with his 2:13:39 run from 1970 still atop the record book.
