Brooks Spring into Shape Melbourne Series 2011

Spring is upon us and it’s time to look and feel sensational while saying goodbye to the winter blues – the cold early mornings, and insulating kilos!

Melbourne’s superior short-distance running and walking event, the Brooks Spring into Shape Series, will be held on Sunday, 18 September, Sunday, 23 October and Sunday, 27 November at Alexandra Gardens.

With the choice of a 4.2km run/walk, 8.4km run/walk, or 12.7km run, all ages and abilities can participate in this event, which is designed to challenge participants, as they take in some of Melbourne’s inner city beauty. PLUS, maintaining the same course and distances across the Series allows participants to increase and gauge their fitness levels during Spring, leading into an event filled Summer!
