Reach for your Runners
Run Melbourne is back! This epic fun run returns to our city streets on Sunday 28th July for it's twelfth consecutive year. Not only is it a great way to burn some energy, it's a huge fundraiser too. Did you know that since 2008, Run Melbourne participants have collectively raised over $16.5 million for more than 400 charities that's quite something.

So what can you expect this year? There are several different options, including 5km and 10km fun runs and a half-marathon. Course maps can be found here, but all of the courses involve pounding the streets of Melbourne City, passing iconic landmarks and embracing the feeling of joining thousands of other runners, as you push your endurance to the limits. Kilometre markers and drinks stations along the way will help you achieve your goal.
