The Tallangatta Running and Strongman Festival has a 21.1km half marathon along with 10km, 5km and 2km running/walking events. This event replaces the Rock n Run Walk For Fun from previous years.
The event scheduled for September 18th 2016 was cancelled, and this event will not go ahead again in the future.
The half marathon starts in the main street of Tallangatta, competitors will circle the central park before heading West on the rail trail out to the new Sandy Creek Bridge. After crossing the bridge, the course continues for a further 400m before the turn around and heading back to Tallangatta for the finishing chute in front of the information centre in Tallangatta.
The shorter distances follow similar courses but turn around sooner. The running surface is bitumen initially, then a firm crushed granite surface on the rail trail.
