The past few years have seen an explosion in fitness events across the country, including many right here in Melbourne. Many are charity fundraisers, either for a pre-chosen cause or for whichever charity is close to your heart. Distances range from one mile (1.6km) to a full marathon of 40km, or an epic 100km walk. Pick your event, pick your pace, and get ready to get involved.
