Good Life Fitness Victoria Half Marathon

This half marathon is a beautiful, seaside course with lots of mild undulations and with views of beautiful Victoria landmarks throughout. An amazing race whether this is your first half marathon or you are a seasoned marathoner. All participants receive a long sleeve New Balance technical shirt, finisher's medal and certificate. The Half Marathon is our largest group of runners but like the Marathon, this distance sold out quickly in 2016.
