5KM COURSE

 

 

Celebrate as you kick off your Run Melbourne 5K with a start along St Kilda Road, just south of Linlithgow Ave. Make your way onto Birdwood Ave before taking a sharp U-turn back towards the city along St Kilda Rd to Petticoat Lne. Head back across Swan St Bridge with the newly made pedestrian walkway before striding along Batman Ave, past Rod Laver and around Grandslam Oval.

 

 

 

It’s time to soak up the vibe at this entertainment hot spot before running across Rod Laver Bridge and then around the MCG forecourt. A short stint to Brunton Ave and you’re coming into the home straight as you hit William Barrack Bridge. Take into the spectacular city sights as you run over the bridge. It’s your final 500m sprint into the finish chute at Birranrung Marr.
