About the Albert Park MS Walk and Fun Run

Every year on the first Sunday in June, thousands of people come together in Melbourne to walk and run in support of Australians living with multiple sclerosis. Taking part in the 2013 MS Walk and Fun Run will not only improve your overall health and fitness, it will also make you feel warm inside for contributing to such a great cause. Stroll or power-walk, travel by wheelchair, pram or stroller, wear serious sports gear or wacky team costumes. Whatever you choose, you will be helping thousands of Australians who are living with multiple sclerosis.

MaxNRG-warm-up

The MS Walk and Fun Run is organised by MS Australia and our own MaxNRG Personal Training team are once again helping support the event by organising the ‘warm up’. Since the first event in 1989, MS Walk and Fun Run participants have raised millions of dollars to fund essential services and support for people living with MS.

The MS Walk and Fun Run will go ahead rain or shine. Come prepared with sunscreen, warm layered clothes and wet weather gear to ensure you have a great day no matter what the weather brings. Bring your own water bottle and a snack or two to keep your energy levels up.

Run for the Kids Volunteers!


This enormous event of 35,000 entries could not be staged without the dedication and hard work of volunteers. Behind the scenes the event relies on more than 800 volunteers to man drink stations, street corners and the finish line to assist and cheer the runners on their way.

Volunteering is a terrific way of being involved and helping to raise vital funds for the 2013 Good Friday Appeal.

Lunch is provided, and all volunteers receive a free tshirt.

Volunteers for the 2013 Herald Sun/CityLink Run for the Kids must be 16 years of age on 24 March 2013 and will be required to attend one of two Information and Training Sessions in February-March 2013. Further details regarding training sessions will be provided.

Course Marshal – On Course
Course Marshals are assigned to designated areas along the run course to help ensure that the course is safe for participants to compete on. The course is divided into 6 Sectors. Each Sector will have a Sector Leader and these Sector Leaders will be issued a radio and will brief and deploy individual marshals to the course.

Drink Station Assistant – On Course
Volunteers are deployed to drinks stations on the course to ensure that runners are provided with drinks while participating in the event. Volunteers set up drink stations before the runners arrive by laying out cups and filling with water. They then provide drinks to runners, and remove empty/used cups.

Start / Finish Drink Station Assistant – Race Village
Volunteers provide drinks to runners at the start line. After the long course starts, they pack up the start line drinks station and move to the finish line. At the finish line, volunteers provide drinks to runners, and remove empty/used cups.

Start Line / Finish Line Marshal – Race Village
Volunteers help direct entrants to the correct marshalling zone areas at the Start line. Each zone is clearly indicated with feather flags & signs corresponding to coloured race numbers. When the runners cross the finish line they will be exhausted and excited. They will most likely want to stop, rest and chat. This can create a very congested finish area. It is your job to congratulate and thank them but to then kindly ask them to keep moving as they need to pass through the back-up timing system to ensure their time is captured.

Timing Chip Removal Marshals – Race Village
Volunteers assist competitors to remove their timing chips after they cross the line and collect them in the supplied tubs. Clippers will be provided.

Information Assistant – Race Village
A specific Information Tent will be set up in the Village as a central point for general questions and enquires. Some volunteers are required to staff the tent, some will be positioned on stands to help direct people and others will wander through the Village and help answer people’s questions.

Baggage Services Assistant – Race Village
A fenced baggage storage area will be set up in the village with entries at one end and exits at the other. Volunteers assist with managing the flow of participants through this area.

Volunteer Services Assistant – Race Village
Volunteers will be responsible for checking in all volunteers for the event and providing them with meal vouchers and tshirts.

Run Melbourne, presented by The Age

[fb-like]
Take part in this year Run Melbourne, one of Melbourne’s major walk, fun run charity event in Melbourne. Come and join in the event this year at Federation Square on Sunday 15th July 2012.

Run Melbourne, presented by The Age

It’s on again in 2012!

On Sunday, 15 July 2012, Run Melbourne, presented by The Age will be held once again, offering participants a half-marathon, an Australian Institute of Fitness 10km run and a 5km run or walk, starting and finishing at Federation Square. From its inception in 1994 as Run to the G, this event has become synonymous with Melbourne.

When the event first started in 1994 it was a major running and walking event for Melbourne and Victoria that incorporated many of the cities finest landmarks and giving participants a chance to make their weekend run an occasion to remember by finishing with a lap of the iconic MCG.

Much has changed since those early days with the event no longer finishing with a lap of the MCG, nor does it start in Yarra Park, and more distances and events have been added (a 5km walk/run, 10km run and a half-marathon (21.1km)).

*UPDATE – Early bird entries close Friday 15 June! Enter HERE NOW!

The event now has a new home at Federation Square and the date of the event has gradually moved from being held in May or mid June to now mid July.

Although the course has changed both distances and routes throughout the years, the inner city course remains Melbourne’s most scenic and takes in such landmarks as Flinders St. Station, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Federation Square, Princes Bridge, the Sandridge rail bridge, the Yarra River and the picturesque parkland at Birrarung Marr.

The Age Run Melbourne is the community fitness event for everyone. With the right training, anyone, at any age and any fitness level can participate. It’s also an opportunity to raise money for the charity you care about most. Last years 2011 event had 20,447 participants and raised $1,279,395 for a number of fantastic charities.
