#thisis40

2017 marks the Medibank Melbourne Marathon Festival’s 40 year anniversary. Staging the first ever race in 1978, over 2000 runners took part in Melbourne’s first ever marathon event. In 2017 the Medibank Melbourne Marathon Festival has over 35,000 participants from all over Australia and overseas compete in their choice of Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km Run, Asics 5.7km run and 3km walk events.

#thisis40 was created to celebrate our 40th year with the help of a very special group of 40 runners who are all in their 40th year.  Our #thisis40 Ambassadors have been chosen to represent and motivate first time participants to veteran runners and prove you can be fit at 40! They will share their training progress, their challenges, triumphs, and their joy as they take on the Marathon or Half Marathon at this year’s event.

Follow their stories online or share your own experience with the hashtag #thisis40.
