Cadbury Marathon History

 

From humble beginnings, the Cadbury Marathon rolled into existence back in 1984. Since then, thousands have participated in Tasmania’s largest marathon, with some out to break records, with others aiming to accomplish a lifelong goal of completing a marathon.

Cadbury has been the major partner every step of the way. The current course starts and finishes at the picturesque Cadbury Estate in the northern suburbs of Hobart, taking in many of Hobart’s scenic delights such as Mt Wellington and the Derwent River.

The following runners have run and won the Cadbury Marathon, over its 30 year history.  Congratulations to the following list of Cadbury Marathon winners who are welcome back anytime!

Half Marathon (Men - 1:05:35, Women - 1:14:00)

Full Marathon (Men - 2:23:39, Women - 2:46:27)
