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 between Bendigo and Heathcote. 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 26km event, a quarter marathon, mile, 5km fun run/walk, 500m or the very popular teams event being the Ekiden Relay. Cycling enters the event for the first time the day before the run, walk and roll
