The 10K course no longer heads up St Kilda Rd to Toorak Rd, now runners will do a loop in and around Birdwood Ave/ Alexandra Parade/ Anderson St before heading back up St Kilda Rd across a newly finished pedestrian bridge to the Tennis precinct.
Get ready for more sights, less congestion and more fun!
With a start along St Kilda Road, just south of Linlithgow Ave, embrace your 10K race day as you make your way onto Birdwood Ave for a lap around The Tan (watch for the slight incline!). Passing the Shrine of Remembrance get ready to put in a little speed through a fast section of the course down Anderson St hill and along Alexander Pde. Onto Linlithgow Ave and Petticoat Ln where you’re coming up to the halfway point of the race.
Head back across Swan St Bridge with the newly made pedestrian walkway before striding along Batman Ave, past Rod Laver and around Grandslam Oval. Soak up the vibe from at this entertainment hot spot before running across Rod Laver Bridge. Dig deep through the last section of the course along Yarra Park and Brunton Park, before giving it all you have as you bring it home in the last kilometre. Caution: there’s one final hill up Wellington Parade South. Nailed it! And a final left turn into Batman Avenue with a 500m downhill and you’re into the finish chute at Birranrung Marr.
