Run Melbourne 25 JULY 2021 


Run Melbourne isn’t your average run. Over the last 14 years it has grown into a movement that has changed the culture of what it means to run through the city streets. Join us on Sunday, 25th July.

Run Melbourne Event Update

In light of the Government announcement of the forced lockdown extension, it is with deep regret that we are announcing that Run Melbourne can no longer proceed this Sunday 25 July, and will be postponed to 2022.

As a family-owned and run business committed to the running community for over 40 years, this decision comes with tremendous disappointment from our entire team. The health and wellbeing of our participants, staff, volunteers, stakeholders and the wider Victorian community is of utmost importance to us. While we cannot run through the streets of this fabulous city of ours on Sunday we will continue to focus on returning to running Run Melbourne together.

If you have an entry please see your options, you can also run virtually with us from 24 July to 1 August at no additional costs.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

Stay safe and well.

Inspiring a city to run

With closed roads and a fast, flat course, more than 20,000 runners descend on the streets, heading past some of Melbourne’s most famous landmarks. Cheer zones and epic vibes make this a race weekend unlike any other.

Join the movement and let’s inspire our city to run.

What we have achieved

Over the past 14 years, we have raised over $18 million dollars for hundred of charities.

Sole Motive is passionate about supporting runners to fundraise. We believe we can give extra meaning to our training by supporting the causes we love. Giving is more than just money, it’s the time, effort and voice you give that makes the difference. So join us, rally behind your favourite charity and make your run count in 2021.
