About the Running Fit Health & Fitness Expo
New in 2011, is the free Running Fit Health & Fitness Expo (Thursday, 14 July – Saturday, 16 July) and a 3km Kids Run (Saturday, 16 July).
While the kids run, parents can visit the Running Fit Health & Fitness Expo (open from 8am until 1:30pm) at Federation Square to check out all the latest running gear (with exclusive sales/discounts), to seek advice from trainers, dieticians and athletes, or to mingle with fellow parents and Run Melbourne participants.
The expo will feature state of the art displays, interactive stalls and exclusive discounts on some of the leading running shoe, apparel, accessory and nutrition brands.
The Run Melbourne Expo is a must see for all running and fitness enthusiasts as well as a great place to start if you are a novice runner, social jogger or weekend warrior looking to improve your health and fitness, break through the pain barrier, or to simply enjoy your running experience more.
There will be seminars on how to prepare for an event, including training tips and advice on what to eat in the lead up to an event, PLUS trainers, dieticians and athletes will be available to chat to about any running or fitness queries you may have. Free fitness and health assessments and other activities to get you more involved in Run Melbourne will be on offer, as well as sample healthy snacks and the opportunity to learn about upcoming events!
The expo is also a great opportunity to meet other like minded people, especially for interstate and international participants keen to meet locals who can tell them about the local area and the sights.
3km Kids Run
With the introduction of the Kids Run anyone can really be a part of Run Melbourne, presented by The Age in 2011.
The Kids Run is designed for young primary and secondary school students (aged between four and fourteen years old), who may not be able to complete the 5km distance. It is intended to encourage young people to lead a fit and healthy life, to set goals and to take pride in their achievements.
The Kids Run is a great way for students to represent their school in a fun, friendly and challenging community fitness event in a non-competitive atmosphere. It also provides an opportunity for them to raise funds for their favourite charity.
The Kids Run is a 3km off-road untimed run around the banks of the Yarra will be beld at 10am on SATURDAY, 16 JULY (the day before the main event). It is held on the day prior to Run Melbourne, so that kids can avoid the ‘hustle and bustle’ of the main race day, and participate with just their peers.
All kids will receive a medal for participation, and a showbag of goodies at the finish line. Their names will also be printed in the Run Melbourne Results Liftout in The Age on Tuesday, 19 July 2011.
