Training Runs

The countdown is on for Run Melbourne 2022!

Training and challenging yourself should be fun – and we want to support and encourage you to have fun while you train in any way possible. 

This is why we are so excited to kick off our Run Melbourne Training Runs from Tuesday 17 May.

About Run Melbourne Training Runs

Our training runs cater to the long distance athlete, the running rookie and everything in between.

The sessions are led by our passionate Running Mentors and Run Leaders, who will be there to support you every step of the way during your time with them. It’s a place where you not only have an opportunity to get expert advice and improve your PB (if that is what you want!), but also a place where you can meet with other people from the running community and make new friends while you challenge each other.

Training Run Time Table

Run Melbourne Training schedule

Below you can see the three routes for the Thursday city run and Friday Hawthorn runs.

Don’t forget:

Water bottle

Remember to stay hydrated! There will be places available where you can leave your bottle while you run.

Watch or other tracker

Because if you didn’t track it, it didn’t happen… or did it?

Warm jumper/jacket

Something warm to put on after your run to prevent getting cold

Arrive 10 min early

The run starts at the exact time in the timetable.
