Back in the Philippines, I used to be really active in almost all running marathons. But work became hectic, shifting schedules etc, I had no time for training. So while I’m here in Melbourne, I figured why not join some.

I Googled for events calendar and chose the best one, then registered online.
Witihin a few minutes, I received the confirmation email. We have to start slow so I opted to join the 3KM walk. We had to pay $45 each as we don’t qualify for the early bird fee anymore. We also need to pick up our race packs from the Medibank Melbourne Marathon Festival Race Week Office (details in the email).


Adult – Early Bird $35.00
Child (0 – 16 Years) – Early Bird $15.00
Adult – Standard Entry $45.00
Child (0 – 16 Years) – Standard Entry $20.00

The $45 fee includes:

  • Race Bib
  • Race Information Booklet
  • Show bag and gift
  • Finishers Medal
*The 3km Walk is not a timed event, therefore there won’t be a timing chip attached to the bib
3KM event details:
Start Time 11:15am
Start Location Batman Avenue
150m North of Rod Laver Arena
Other distance available are:
  • Half Marathon 42.195
  • Half Marathon 21.1
  • Run 10KM
  • Run 5KM

Though I am not really going to run, I’m pretty excited because this is my first international event. This is scheduled on a Sunday 12th of October.
