The LiveLighter Blackwood Marathon on Saturday, 26 October 2019 is a relay race held annually on the last Saturday of October.
This year celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Marathon and coincides with Bridgetown’s 150th birthday, so it's going to be a big one!
The Marathon is a unique event where competitors enter in teams comprising 5 members, or a single ironman and ironwoman. Starting in Boyup Brook and finishing in Bridgetown, competitors run, canoe, swim, horseride and a cycle across 60km of picturesque Blackwood River Valley countryside. It’s a mix of fun and sweat, with many top athletes coming miles to compete alongside many just joining in for the fun of it.
5 leg relay:
+ 8.5km canoe
+ 1km swim
