The Shepparton Running Festival has a marathon on a 3 lap course on a bike path which closely follows the Goulburn and Broken Rivers running through Shepparton along the sealed, shared pathways. There are also half marathon, 10km, 5km and 2km fun run/walks.
The course is essentially flat with undulations around the river banks. An ideal event for the first time marathon entrant and fast for the experienced. The course is well marked and marshals are stationed at crucial points. Drink stops are plentiful on the course.
