Nike Melbourne Marathon Festival

About the Event

Nike Melbourne Marathon Festival 

Sunday 2 October (October long weekend) 

Join thousands of others and make a difference as you run, jog, wheel or walk your way through the city streets, passing iconic Melbourne landmarks, before finishing with a lap of honour around the MCG’s hallowed turf. 


Join the Jodi Lee Foundation team to help raise much needed funds and awareness for the prevention and early detection of bowel cancer.  

Register today and choose your challenge, by running the Nike Marathon (42.2km), Nike Half Marathon (21.1km), 10km Run, 5km Run or the 3km walk.  

Whether your focus is the finish line, or the finish time, don’t miss the chance to go the extra mile and fundraise for an important cause.

If that’s not incentive enough, our friends at Brooks Running Company will give the top three highest fundraisers in the Jodi Lee Foundation Melbourne Marathon Festival team a pair of Glycerin 19 running shoes, their softest shoe ever that provides premium comfort mile after mile.
