Spectators welcome!


While running a marathon is a massive effort, organising one requires a huge amount of work also.
If you are interested in volunteering to help out at the Cadbury Marathon, then we would love to hear from you.
Helpers will receive goodies from our sponsors and will be required for various tasks including; course marshalls, drinks station helpers, finish line helpers and various other roles.
To register your interest in helping out, please use our contact details here.

Use of MP3 players and iPods
We strongly recommend that participants do not wear headphones when competing, so you are able to hear requests from fellow competitors, police, marshals and traffic.
This is also for fairness of your fellow competitors, as you will all be sharing the road in various events. Although the roads are closed there will be emergency services vehicles on the course so please be aware of motorbikes, cars and ambulances travelling on the course.

I’m running with my child in the Cadbury Mini Marathon – do I need to enter?
Yes. All participants need to be entered so they are covered for insurance. 100% of the entry money for the Cadbury Mini Marathon is donated to the Clown Doctors.

Bag drop
You can leave a bag at the race admin area. Simply use the bag tag on your race number to attach to your bag and hand it into our admin team at Cadbury. Loose items such as keys or phones will not be accepted unless in a tagged bag.

  • Did the The Running Edge 5k in 2019

    My first race & the atmosphere was great. The kids did the 1k and enjoyed it too. The choc bag was great too especially the bumbag.
  • Did the The Running Edge 5k in 2019

    This event was amazing, very well organised and the atmosphere was so uplifting. Loved it when Freddo and the other characters came out; this just added to the fun. Be aware for anyone wanting to do the 5km, it is not easy; the ground slopes, there are a fee little inclines and it is on the golf course.
  • Did the Cadbury Half Marathon in 2019

    Absolutely loved the course. More half marathon distance markers would be great for those without a running watch!
  • Did the Cadbury Half Marathon in 2019

    Great weather. Great day. Not enough distance signs for half marathon and too big a gap between drink station at the Derwent Entertainment Centre and around 3 to 4 kms to the finish.
  • Did the Cadbury Marathon in 2019

    So good. Looking forward to coming back in 2020! Like the local feel and chilled atmosphere. ThanksDave
