Training and challenging yourself should be fun experience, filled with excitement and encouragement. That’s why we’re thrilled to kick off our Run Melbourne Training Runs from Tuesday 4th June.

About Run Melbourne Training Runs

Our training runs cater to the running rooke, the long distance athlete and everyone in between. With Tuesday sessions open to everyone, and Sunday Long Run sessions designed specifically for Half Marathon participants, this is the opportunity for you to prepare for your run at Run Melbourne!

The sessions are led by the fantastic Crosbie Crew team leaders, who will be there to support you every step of the way. 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.
