Ballarat has a rich sporting and cultural history. The BALLARAT MARATHON is designed to celebrate this.

Held annually in late April, the Ballarat Marathon will be a two-day running festival, open to both elite and recreational athletes.

Our event will showcase one of regional Australia’s most beautiful and historic cities and promote health and wellbeing across the community.

We are inviting elite and recreational runners to visit the city and #RUNTHERAT.
