Originating in 1969, the Murray Marathon is one of the world’s longest canoe races covering a distance of 404km over its five-day duration.

The event starts in Yarrawonga and finishes in Swan Hill, passing through Tocumwal, Picnic Point, Echuca, Torrumbarry, Cohuna and Murrabit on the way.

One of the major aims for the Murray Marathon is to support the Murray River region. The event is run by the YMCA, a not-for-profit organisation committed to investing all funds raised from the event back into the Murray River region.
