No, you definitely don't have to be in Melbourne!
Our main event is the Melbourne Marathon on Sunday 13th October, however we've had people running and fundraising in other states previously (including someone dressed as a polar bear in NSW last year)!
Here's a great list of other runs happening across Australia in October. You could register for any of those and still fundraise as part of our Run for Change team!
And if October doesn't suit you, you can run in a different time. Feel free to discuss and of your ideas or concerns with Marta at firstname.lastname@example.org.
