The island is gearing up for an unforgettable experience this May… Picture this, standing at the starting line,  lacing up your running shoes, whilst being surrounded by enchanting azure waters and lush greenery. The air is buzzing with excitement as athletes gather around you for the ultimate test of endurance and determination. This is the Half Hill Marathon, taking place on Sunday, 5th May, 2024. 


But what sets this race apart from the rest? 

The course offers a blend of thrilling hills and natural beauty. From winding trails to scenic look-outs, every step is an opportunity to enjoy the extraordinary views the island is well known for. As marathon legend Steve Moneghetti says, it's "probably the most scenic marathon run in Australia... but also one of the toughest." So, if you're up for a challenge, this is your time to shine.
