Wellness Walk and Research Run 2021, Date, Prices, Course, Melbourne
With a brand new location, on-course entertainment, a yoga session on event day, one of a kind event village and lots more, bring the whole family down including your four-legged family members!
Choose between two distances of 5km or 10km and walk or run. The event village is located at Alexandra Gardens (palm side) and the walk or run will take place around the Tan Track.
Participants will be staggered for both distances and everyone will start and finish in the heart of the event village. This year, the runs will not be timed, but if you would like to time yourself, there will be points during the course where you may have to stop to cross the road.
All fitness levels are welcomed and both distances are all-inclusive, pram friendly and even suitable for your canine friends.
After your walk or run, enjoy the festivities of the event village. This is a perfect opportunity for the whole family to enjoy all the activities and entertainment on offer, as well as the delicious food. You can also be stress-free during your time at the event by using the bag drop area located in the event village.
We recommend you purchase your tickets early, as history tells us that the participants who purchase their tickets early are more likely to reach their fundraising target!
