Ride, run, jog or walk – it’s your choice when it comes to participating in the MS Melbourne Cycle or Half Marathon on Sunday 31 March 2019!

Prefer the wind on your face and taking in the stunning views of Melbourne? Then the Melbourne Cycle is right for you! For those seeking a challenge, the 30km and 50km courses will take riders on a breathtaking spin over the fully closed West Gate Bridge and around some lesser known unique sights of inner Melbourne.

If you want the whole family to get involved, the 6km and 3km courses provide a more relaxing day out for kids and adults as you take the circuit around Flemington Racecourse.

In 2019, we are again hosting a Half Marathon to take place alongside the Melbourne Cycle, allowing all our run enthusiasts the chance to fundraise for multiple sclerosis. The unique course starts and finishes in the grounds of the Flemington Racecourse which will take runners through the fabled Flemington rose gardens and the Melbourne Showgrounds.

Two shorter courses will also be on offer with 5km and 10km courses for those who prefer a more relaxed distance.

Amenities, volunteers and cheering family and friends will be aplenty for both runners and riders to make the most of the day.

Multiple sclerosis is an invisible disease which does not yet have a cure, and with over 25,000 Aussies living with multiple sclerosis the time is now to fight MS.

Don’t want to participate on the day but still want to help? Why not donate to a rider or join our amazing team of volunteers.

3km walk through Airport West's Green Spine Path supported by local businesses & sporting clubs for men and boys of all ages to participate in to help stop violence against women.

Everybody is welcome at the final destination for a free BBQ to be hosted by LaManna Supermarket. We as a community need to come together and in particular men to show all women that we will not stand by and allow this violence to continue. We all have the right to feel safe in our homes and our streets without the fear of violence so let's make the inaugural Walk4Women a successful day and get as many people involved as possible.
