Funds raised will support cancer research breakthroughs and provide access to world-leading wellness and supportive care programs, giving patients hope during their cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
Wellness Walk and Research Run 2023, Date, Prices, Course, Melbourne
This year, the 5km walk will be held again in one of Olivia’s favourite spots in Melbourne — the Tan and the beautiful Alexandra Gardens.
Olivia would want it to be a day of joy and positivity, so invite your friends, family and coworkers and show your support for Olivia and those with cancer together.
We recommend you purchase your tickets early, as history tells us that the participants who purchase them early are more likely to reach their fundraising target!
Please arrive at least one hour before your wave start time to allow plenty of time to check in, collect and write on your race bib, walk around the village, and participate in the warmup.
The course is approximately 5.5km and will start and finish at Engineers Lawn, Alexandra Gardens and take in Melbourne’s famous Tan Track.
Wave times commence from 9:15am with a new wave starting every 30 minutes. Your race bib will indicate which wave you have entered. Please listen to the announcements from the MC regarding warm up at the stage and marshalling at the start line.
