REGISTRATION LINK: https://events.humanitix.com/myth-marathon

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

We all have that one marathon that is so big in our minds that it’s reached mythical proportions. For some, it’s a time. A sub-four marathon. A sub-three thirty. For others, it’s an event. The London Marathon, the New York Marathon, the Niagara Falls Marathon, or one with some sentimental meaning that is unmatched.

This marathon, the Myth Marathon, is being held in honour of all those marathons – near, far, or exclusively in our hearts – that we myth (and sometimes miss). For these events we dream of conquering, we raise our running shoes to do homage. May we one day achieve our mythical dreams.


COURSE DESCRIPTION & MAP:

The Myth Event trials a new course in the scenic area of the City of Norwood, Payneham, & St. Peters. The course consists of a 10.55km loop along the River Torrens Linear Trail. The starting point will be in Drage Reserve just off Riverside Dr, near a playground and public toilet (see map).

AID STATION:
