The O'Keefe Rail Trail Marathon Inc., Athletics Bendigo, Sponsors and Community Groups bring you an off-road marathon and its associated events on the historic O'Keefe Rail Trail.
Following the path of the original railway in 1888 the trail passes through spectacular natural bushland, farmland and waterways. Completed for cycling, walking and recreational running in 2015 the O'Keefe provides the opportunity to get off the bitumen but on a not so daunting surface for those who are either off-road or road running enthusiasts.
The O'Keefe Rail Trail Marathon is more than just a marathon, it has the potential to be a life- changing experience for individuals and the wider community. For those that like other distances there is a 26 km event, a quarter marathon, mile, 5 km run/walk, 500 m or the very popular teams event being the Ekiden Relay.
