Wangaratta Marathon and Fun Runs

February 23, 2020 # 10
The event starts at 06:00.

The Wangaratta Marathon and Fun Runs is bought to you by Justin and Sharon Scholz of Wangaratta Fitness Fun Addicts.

The event motto says it all – “More people moving more often”.

Entry prices for this event are much less than their counterparts and we take pride in that. We arent looking for big profits, but we are unashamedly looking to draw people to Wangaratta to enjoy the beautiful path networks and environmental surrounds of our thriving rural city.

We secretly hope that we can encourage people to engage more in physical happiness and become more active than they were before joining our event.

We measure success on entry numbers, total distance covered by entrants and return entries in future years.

Please join us this year and please continue to move more often, enjoying this event on the fourth Sunday in February for many years to come!
