The tragedy in Boston, Massachusetts, might still be fresh in everyone's mind, but that is not expected to prevent a massive turnout at the Great Ocean Road Marathon , which will be held on 18 and 19 May 2013 in Melbourne, Australia.
“Most other great marathons around the world are run among buildings and skyscrapers such as Boston, London, and Tokyo, but here, competitors are surrounded by the beauty of the Great Ocean Road landscape,” Event Director John Craven says.
"Although it’s a tough course, the sounds of crashing waves and spectacular scenery helps ease the pain of the run.”
The Great Ocean Road Marathon is now in its ninth year. Runners travel from all over Australia and around the world to participate in the event.
