Run Melbourne Partners

Run Melbourne is proud to join forces with lululemon in an exciting, Australian-first partnership that will see the event become Run Melbourne presented by lululemon, for 2017 and 2018.

A major milestone in Run Melbourne’s historic 10th year, this partnership sees two of the most inspiring active names coming together to celebrate the joy of running in Australia’s sportiest city, and encourage runners of all levels to take part and be their best. Together, Run Melbourne and lululemon will motivate participants to not only achieve their personal and fitness goals, but to connect through sport, and reclaim the streets of the city.

Partnering with Run Melbourne is part of lululemon’s ongoing strategy to highlight the technical and athletic nature of its product, focusing primarily on feel, fit and function, while heroing the brand’s core values of honesty, courage, personal responsibility, connection, entrepreneurialism and fun. With lululemon’s support, participants can expect many new developments, both pre and post race.

Thankyou was born in 2008 in response to the World Water Crisis. At that time, over 900 million people didn’t have access to safe drinking water on a daily basis, yet the Australian bottled water industry was worth an estimated $600 million a year. Pretty wild given Aussies can access safe water straight from the tap!
