Launceston Marathon

Categories :Fun Run, Half Marathon, Marathon, Northern Event


The Launceston Marathon returns for a second year on Sunday, 23 September 2018 with full, half and quarter marathon distances and new for 2018, a 5km fun run.

The race circuit is centred around the North Esk precinct, taking in the trails of Heritage Forest and the river foreshore. A flat, flowing course away from traffic, it’s safe and accessible for those attempting their first “quarter” – yet ready to test keen runners after that 42.2km PB!

First, second and third male and female finishers across all events will be presented with trophies. Finisher medals will be given to all competitors at the completion of their event.



The philosophy of the Masters movement isĀ participation. Come along and enjoy yourself in running, walking, throwing and jumping. While membership is restricted to those over 30, children or grandchildren of members are most welcome to participate with us. Only financial members are eligible for Championships however.
