Marysville Marathon routes

Course Cut Off Times

The Falls Rd must be re-opened to public traffic at 2pm. Therefore, a cutoff time of 1pm will be applied to all 50k, 42k and 21k runners as they pass through Gallipoli Park before heading out to Steavenson Falls to complete the final 10km of their event. This equates to:

50k runners: 7hr cutoff for the first 36km
42k runners: 6hr cutoff for the first 28km
21k runners: 4hr cutoff for the first 11.1km

Anyone with any concerns about these times should contact the race director. The possibility of an early start may be available, early starts are only considered for slow runners unlikely to make cutoffs, not as a general option.

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Ive run the 1/2 4 times so no surprises just a couple hrs of fun. Great aid stations and volunteers, course was easy to navigate great atmosphere at the finish.
  • Did the 10 km in 2018

    As always an amazing event organised by amazing people. Safe, friendly, fun and social like all Trails+ events
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    The whole event was great especially having the team from rise there for a post race massage.
  • Did the Ultramarathon in 2018

    This was my third time at this event so I was familiar with the course and information.Would suggest that the race info booklet is emailed out earlier - I think most runners like it receive event info about a week before the race so they have plenty of time to prepare.
  • Did the Ultramarathon in 2018

    The hills..!!!! Ha ha, I knew it had hills but not that steep!! Nah, all good, first time for me but many running buddies had pre warned me. I love a tough course and this one didnt disappoint! Excellent as always from the trails+ team. Thanks
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    Some of the early Trail was as rugged as any I have come across. I ought to have taken more care on these rough parts as I jammed my toe on a rock and had a stack. The injury slowed me down and impaired my enjoyment of the rest of the course.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    First rime running a trail run so didnt really know what to expect. I know its a bit hard but kilometre markers or markers every 2-5 k so we get distance without having to rely on a watch.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

    The only issue I had and it might have been naive on my behalf but I thought that the course profile provided with the 21km course map had been stretched to a point where it bore very little resemblance to the actual course. I don't know that seeing a more accurate course profile would have made any difference to my experience on the day but I guess I will now know for next year.
  • Did the Ultramarathon in 2018

    It would have been great to have done course recon before race day so I knew what the last 15km was going to be like. Make sure you have some hill training in your plan, and a well practised nutrition strategy. The Aid stations on this event are plentiful, staffed by great volunteers, and well stocked
  • Did the 10 km in 2018

    Beautiful run ... very challenging because of the hills! Highly recommend the challenge!!
