About Cadbury Marathon

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 Cadbury Marathon in Claremont, Tasmania starts and finishes by the Cadbury Factory. There is the full marathon, half marathon, 10km, 5km and a 1km event for kids under 12. All finishers will receive a Cadbury bag at the finish line, choc full of various goodies. Depending on which event you are in, you could get a medal, sports towel, GU, water, fruit and a Cadbury Marathon hat, along with plenty of chocolate as well.
