Community fitness & fundraising events

VU participates in a number of community events encouraging healthy and active lifestyles. Students, staff, alumni and friends can get involved as participants or as part of our volunteer support crew - VUnite.

Events cater for a range of abilities and fitness levels from beginner through to elite.

We coordinate preparatory programs so that you can train together and get to know one another prior to events.
