What is the Blackwood Marathon?


The Blackwood Marathon is a fantastic 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.
