Fitness is about so much more than just the condition of your body (although that’s an undeniably important factor). It’s also about your emotional stability, mental fortitude, and spiritual bliss. Finding a way to satisfy all these criteria can seem like a challenge, but the best opportunities to exercise find a way to satisfy on all fronts. Some experiences are beyond the routine and utilitarian; they’re holistic and deeply affirming in an almost intangible way. For those of you who are deeply enamoured with long-distance running, the right marathon can check every box on your list.

That said, it’s important to find a marathon that speaks to your soul if you’re planning to achieve maximum catharsis from the experience. You’ll want to make sure that the route takes you past incredible scenery, and through a climate that allows you to perform at your very best. Since much of Australia can experience harsh weather and contain unforgiving terrain throughout the year, this can be a harder task than it might sound like at first. However, incredible long-distance running opportunities do exist, and when you find them, you’ll be glad you took the time to look.

The exact features you should search for in a long-distance run are up to you, but you should answer a few important questions for yourself before you even begin looking. For example: how long are you planning to run? Do you want a relatively undemanding 10k, a challenging half marathon, or a full marathon that will be as intense as it will be rewarding? Next, think about the amenities you’ll want to enjoy. After all, if you’re travelling to run a marathon, you might as well treat yourself to a few pleasures while you’re on vacation. Perhaps a winery visit or a trip to a vineyard is in order?
