Blackwood Marathon

October 26 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm


Saturday 26th of October 2024

The Blackwood Marathon is a relay race held annually on the last Saturday of October. It was originally a vision that some members of the Bridgetown Rotary Club had in 1979 as a way for the town to celebrate Western Australia’s 150th Anniversary. From humble beginnings, of just 54 teams (220 competitors), it has grown from strength to strength and now boasts over 750 competitors, including many iron-men and iron-women. The Blackwood Marathon is a unique event and has attracted many top athletes.

The competitors enter this event in teams comprising of 5 members, or ironmen and ironwomen. A runner, a canoeist, a swimmer, an equestrian and a cyclist. The race begins in the town of Boyup Brook and finishes in Bridgetown after journeying around 60kms through some of Western Australia’s most picturesque countryside in the Blackwood River Valley.
