Due to the number of road and construction works taking place in the Melbourne CBD and St Kilda areas these courses may need to change at short notice. We will keep participants updated if changes are needed to be made.


Electrolyte Gels

Please ensure that if you plan to use electrolyte gels on course please consider other runners and the local environment and do not discard them on the road. Please dispose of them in bins, at drink stations or hold onto the rubbish until the end of your run.
