Melbourne’s most anticipated running festival, Run Melbourne, is back with something for friends, families and fitness fanatics.
Run Melbourne will once again fill the streets with more than 20,000 participants expected to hit the pavement across four events: the 4K Friendship Dash (a free event suitable for families and friends – including the furry ones!), the Half-Marathon, the 10K run and the 5K run.
This year Run Melbourne is celebrating 12 years of growing into a movement that has changed the culture of running through the streets of Melbourne. With cheer zones, more training support and fundraising resources, participants are set to enjoy an unforgettable race weekend. Over the past 11 years, participants have raised more than $16.5 million for over 400 charities and this year’s target is $2 million.
