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.

Community fitness and active living events provide an ideal opportunity for the University community to get involved in events promoting fitness and health initiatives. Events cater for a range of abilities and fitness levels from beginner through to elite with category choices to suit individual fitness and experience levels.

We coordinate preparatory programs so that participants can come together for group training sessions. The sessions aim to improve fitness levels and allow team members to get to know one another prior to events.

Unite with us and become part of the Victoria University team!
