Melbourne Marathon

Be a part of Australia’s largest marathon and race alongside marathon legends. Circle around Albert Park Lake, Flinders Street Station, pass the St Kilda beach foreshore and cross the finish line at the MCG to cheers from supporters, family and friends. The Nike Melbourne Marathon is a competitive, adrenaline-filled race for those experienced in marathon running who want to set a PB on our fast and flat course, and is also perfect for first-timers and less experienced marathon runners.

You can run the Melbourne Marathon as a member of the Deakin University team. Register for any event (3km, 5km, 10km, Half Marathon or full Marathon) and when registering search for team “Deakin University’. There’s no extra cost to run with the team.

Become a member of your student association and you’ll get awesome merch PLUS discounts on your OFest tickets.
