Run Melbourne

Mark Sunday 24th July 2016 in your calendar and join our Run Melbourne team.

There’s a race for everyone at Run Melbourne, including the 3km Kids event (23rd July), 5km run/walk, 10km run or Brooks Half-Marathon and it’s a great fundraising opportunity.

You’ll receive a fundraising guide and a free Kids Under Cover running top, as well as regular team update emails packed with training and fundraising advice.

We will be there to cheer you along with a dedicated cheering point along the course, but most importantly we’ll provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you’ll know that your efforts are helping Kids Under Cover in preventing youth homelessness. We are the only organisation in Australia offering the unique combination of housing and scholarships for homeless and at-risk young people.

To join our team or find out more information contact our fundraising team by email or call 03 9429 7444

On the day

When you sign up to run with Kids Under Cover at this year’s Run Melbourne you join a dedicated team of runners, volunteers and staff, who will support you every step of the way.

We’ll be at the Event Village at Federation Square on race day before and after your run so you can leave your belongings with our staff and collect post-race when we will have refreshments and snacks on offer.

Volunteer on the day

If running isn’t your thing then you can still join the team! We need volunteers to come along to our cheer point and make a lot of noise and cheer on our runners. Find out more information or register to cheer by emailing
