The Melbourne Marathon Festival holds a special place in the hearts of generations of runners. Although we cannot physically be together this year, Victoria University has joined the Virtual Melbourne Marathon Festival being held from 5 to 13 December 2020.
There are five event distances to choose from:
- Melbourne Marathon (42.195km)
- SriLankan Airlines Half Marathon (21.1km)
- Asics 10km Run
- Westin 5km Run
- 3km Walk
The brand-new Virtual Melbourne Marathon app will power this unprecedented event, connecting participants and teams through an array of feeds and live leaderboards. The app also assists via voice prompts during workouts and entertains with audio cues relating to the actual Melbourne Marathon course.
