Covid Update

The Nike Melbourne Marathon Festival returns on the 10th of October 2021, and planning for ‘Australia’s Largest Marathon’ is well underway.

The health and safety of our participants, spectators, volunteers, partners and team members remains our top priority, and as such we will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation in partnership with local, state, federal authorities and health officials.

We want to reassure you that we are taking the necessary steps and requirements in order to deliver a safe and rewarding event for all involved.

It is our intention to keep our loyal community in the loop as much as possible. If we receive any updates we will be sure to let you know via email, our website and social channels, but for now we’re looking forward to welcoming everyone back for the 2021 Nike Melbourne Marathon Festival.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.


Are there cancellation fees if I withdraw?

If you withdraw from the Event prior to the Withdrawal Cut-Off Date, a cancellation fee will apply. You will be returned your original entry fee less:
Marathon – $40.00
Half Marathon – $30.00
10km – $20.00
5km – $15.00
3km Walk – $15.00

Should you withdraw after 11:59pm June 29th for any reason (including, but not limited to, medical reasons), there is no refund of any portion of the entry fee, subject to applicable laws

Can my friend take my entry if I can no longer compete?

As stated in the registration terms and conditions, under no circumstance are you permitted to give your bib to another person. Name changes are strictly not permitted. If you cannot compete in the event, you must complete a Withdraw Application Form to withdraw from the event.

Why should I register now?

If you’re planning to run in the Nike Melbourne Marathon Festival in 2021 we recommend you register early. Not only will you get the best price, it will secure your entry into your chosen field. Interest in running is growing and with the 2019 Melbourne Marathon already selling out we are expecting high demand.

If the event is cancelled, what happens to my registration?

In the event of a cancellation, and you hold a live and current registration you will be provided with a number of options including transferring to the following year or a full refund of your 2021 registration.

What happens if travel restrictions prevent me from getting to Melbourne?

In the event of travel restrictions affecting registered participants outside of Melbourne at the time of the event we will provide options including transferring to the following year and or a full refund of your registration.
