When is the fun run and how far do I have to run?


Great question!

This year the main event we're taking part in, the Melbourne Marathon, is on Sunday October 13th in Melbourne.

And you don't even have to run! The organisers offer a 3km walk, as well as a range of running distances from 5km to the full marathon. The races all start on Batman Avenue, approximately 150m North of Rod Laver Arena, and end in the MCG.

The 3km walk starts at 11:45am.

The 5km run starts at 11:30am.

The 10km run starts at 7:30am.

The half marathon starts at 8am.

The marathon starts at 7am.
