The Shepparton Travel & Cruise Marathon is the premier Four Vines event - the longest and also the only course that fits in all four wineries ona 42km journey from Fowles Wine to Tahbilk Winery.
The run itself is a mix between road, dirt road, grass sections and access tracks within the wineries. The course is marginally downhill, but with one significant uphill, it probably won't feel like it! You'll run through the vines at Box Grove Vineyard and Mitchelton Wines before finishing alongside the Cathedral vines at Tahbilk Winery.
Marathoners will get to choose how you get to the start line. You can choose to meet at either Tahbilk Winery or the Royal Mail Hotel in Nagambie at 5:30am from a bus to the Fowles start line, or you can make your own way there. Post race, we'll have shuttles back to the Royal Mail Hotel at Nagambie at set times throughout afternoon.
Exact locations to be confirmed
Marathoners must pass 23km by 9:30am to complete the full course. After this time, runners will be diverted to complete an alternative course on Tahbilk to make up the distance.
