The long-running Feilding Marathon is expecting one of its biggest fields for a few years this weekend. Organiser Rob Dabb is hopeful of getting close to 400 entries for the 63rd year of the event on Saturday, which would make it the second biggest after they had about 500 three years ago.
Dabb said entries are up 25 per cent. They will still take entries up to 30 minutes before the race starts on Saturday morning. The Feilding Marathon has been going since 1955, making it the longest consecutive running in Australasia and 19th-longest in the world.
