    Great course with long up/downs and a bit of an unsmooth undulating road. This is my first marathon in Australia and it has a great feel to it. With the Cadbury connection you can walk away with a great medal and a few chocolate blocks in your bag. That alone is worth struggling to the finish line

    Run in January on Tasmania Island, the Cadbury marathon is a great destination race. Although there were large parts of the marathon with little or no spectators, you had beautiful scenery much of the run. I chose to sign up for the VIP experience, a decision that I will never regret. Porta loos a plenty, snacks, water and yes chocolate. Lots of chocolate. The course Is predominately flat, scenic and not crowded at all. The swag (other than chocolate) was lacking. The t-shirt was optional, you had to pay for it at the time of registration. The medal was nice. The staging area prior to the race was slow to set up. Coffee, water and a few snacks were promised at the start of the race, but by the time I left for line up, much of it had not even been set up yet. Definitely a race to run though, as the course runs along the waterfront for much of the marathon. A little sprinkling, a few windy gusts, but a small and organized marathon to enjoy.
