The BMW Berlin Marathon Competition.

The BMW Berlin Marathon Competition.

This year, the Melbourne Marathon could take you much further than 42.2km, because BMW is giving all entrants the chance to win a start in the 2015 BMW Berlin Marathon, with flights, five nights accommodation and more, for you and a friend.

The ASICS Training Series

The ASICS Training Series
The ASICS Training Series is back for another year and you can find these sessions Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday mornings. Pick one, or pick all, just choose your challenge.

Tired of reeling out the long lonely training miles with nothing but your watch, your music and the pavement for company?

Why not join other people with just the same 10km, Half Marathon or Marathon goals in a 11 week series of training runs aimed at having you prepared, peaking and motivated to tackle your target race on 12th October.

Click Here to view the training program.

The first session commences on Sunday July 27.

  • Commencing in late July, the 2014 ASICS Training Run Series will guide your 10km, Half Marathon or Marathon training with varied paces, distances and courses to follow.
  • Each separate group will have at least one Run Leader to take command, so all you need to do is select your group then tag along for the ride. 
  • Sessions will be held on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, giving you the flexibility to select either session or both to supplement your training. 
  • Sessions are FREE to attend with a gold coin donation to CPEC optional

The 2014 ASICS Training Run Series follows a graduated program specifically designed to have you in condition when it counts. With experienced coaches to supervise the training and Run Leaders guiding you each step of the way, group training is an enjoyable way to build up the training kilometers whilst meeting new training partners and learning the craft of running along the way.

A true love game

A true love game

Distance runner Aarthi Venkatesan will be one of the favourites when she lines up in the Medibank Melbourne Marathon this year.

The 37-year-old Brisbane mum of two only began serious running three years ago and made a major breakthrough to claim second in Australian Marathon Championships on the Gold Coast on July 6 in a time of 2:47.30.

Venkatesan has always enjoyed competitive sport. Her father Rabi was an Indian Davis Cup player and she was Australia’s top-ranked junior tennis player back in the early 90s.
