MEDAL MONDAY

While you wait for your physical medal to be delivered, we still want you to be able to proudly show off a medal you ran KMs and sweated buckets for. So we have a solution! Take your best pic with your virtual medal in our augmented reality filter, upload it to Instagram on Monday 15 Dec, tag @melbmara & use the hashtag #medalmonday

THERE IS STILL TIME TO FUNDRAISE

Set the challenge and connect with our incredible running community, all whilst supporting your chosen charity. Just like 2020 participant Erica and her team Run of Courage for Megan who are using the event to shine a light on Bowel Cancer Research while also raising money for the Peter Mac Cancer Centre.  Read Megan’s story here.
