Melbourne Marathon 2017 Dates – Course Route, Entry & Schedule

Thousands of spectators come together in Melbourne to cheer on all the participants during the big race, with the Melbourne Marathon one of the largest marathon events held in the country.

The Melbourne Marathon was originally started back in 1978. In 2007, a new course was developed for the race – starting and ending at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (the MCG).

Additional to the thousands that participate in the full 42km marathon, over tens of thousands of people run the half marathon. There are also course options for novice runners at lengths of 3km, 5.7km and 10km. The race course route goes through some of the most notable and scenic areas of Melbourne; including the Royal Botanic Gardens, Albert Park Lake and the beaches of Port Phillip Bay.
