Just in from squad swimmer Shelley Hatton FYI:
Start your tri season with something different!
The Maramoo marathon is new and it's a new format to Western Australia.
It's on September 10 and is based on a cricket pitch about 10kms south of Dunsborough. We will run through some wineries, some bush tracks and you will marvel at the scenery.
Delight your taste buds as you indulge them while you run the course. You can try local produce and sample wine as you run. Smell the delicious all-day food from Rivendell as you run a lap of the cricket pitch after each of the three legs. Groove to the music as you complete your lap. High five the spectators who are cheering for you.
Of course, afterwards there will be all of the samples to try again! Stay for lunch and a glass of wine. Stay for the presentations to see if you've won one of the many spot prizes.
You can run the whole marathon, the half or enter as a team of three where you each run one leg of the course.
Go silly and enter the best-dressed competition and be in line for a sensational prize.
Grab some friends and make a weekend of it.
