THERE is just eight weeks remaining until the region’s premier distance running event – the annual Wagga Trail Marathon running weekend.
The series of events will be held over the weekend of August 15-16 with the highlight being the Wagga Trail Marathon on the Sunday.
The gruelling 42 kilometre run starts and finishes at the recently upgraded Wagga Beach and the course takes in some beautiful natural areas such as Lake Albert, Murrumbidgee River and Pomingalarna Reserve.
Wagga Road Runners publicity officer Rob Sharpe has put out the call for all interested runners to take part.
“There is a running event to suit everyone on the running weekend,” Sharpe said.
“From a 1.5km ‘Super Hero’ themed run for the kids right up to the full marathon for those looking for the ultimate challenge.
“Teams can even get involved with the marathon relay.”
This year will also see the inclusion of the inaugural Murrumbidgee Mountain Bike Marathon.
