Run Melbourne 2019

Sunday 26 July

Join Team Cancer Council Victoria in this year’s Run Melbourne and help make a real difference to the more than 200,000 Victorians living with cancer.

Run Melbourne is a chance to challenge yourself, set new limits and reduce your cancer risk by being physically active. There are events for all fitness levels:

  • 5km (run or walk)
  • 10km
  • Half marathon (21.1km)

With your help, we're hoping to raise $85,000 to fund Victoria’s brightest researchers, educate people about reducing their cancer risk and provide the best support possible for people affected by cancer.

Raise over $1,000 and become a Cancer Council Victoria Champion

If you commit to raising over $1,000 you could secure a place as a Cancer Council Champion which comes with an array of benefits including free entry. Find out more about becoming a Champion.

Gary FreemanI lost my mother in January 2013, after she was diagnosed with an inoperable cancer.  Around this time, I started running and one of my goals was to participate in an organised fun run. I enjoyed participating in the event and could not have achieved so much without the support of my dedicated supporters and Cancer Council Victoria.

I am looking forward to running again this year in support of Cancer Council Victoria and I hope to raise as much money as possible for them.

We still have a big mountain to climb, but together, we can make a difference.

Gary Freeman, Cancer Council Victoria Champion
