THE countdown for next year’s Wangaratta Marathon and Fun Run has begun with entries opening for the February 23 event last Sunday.
Thanks to tremendous sponsorship support, event directors Sharon and Justin Scholz are expecting the 2014 event to be even bigger and better than 2013.
“We had 1600 entries in 2013 which was at the very top of our expectations,” Sharon said.
“In 2014 we could get 2500 including over 500 primary aged entries.
“The 2013 event was our inaugural marathon after two successful fun runs in 2010 and 2011.”
Justin said they learnt a lot from this year’s event and added they had made improvements to the course to ensure the race flows better and faster.
