The O'Keefe Rail Trail Marathon from Bendigo to Heathcote

The O'Keefe Rail Trail Marathon returns in 2017, with the trail running events being joined by cycling events the day before.

Following the path of the original railway in 1888 the trail passes through spectacular natural bushland, farmland and waterways. Completed for cycling, walking and recreational running in 2015 the O'Keefe provides the opportunity to get off the bitumen but on a not so daunting surface for those who are either off-road or road running and cycling enthusiasts.
