Course Maps and Profiles
We believe our course is one of the best fun run courses on offer. To be so close to the heart of Melbourne, yet able to enjoy the natural bushland around the Kew Boulevard is a unique experience.
All three event distances start on Nolan Avenue outside Burke Hall. Runners proceed along Nolan Ave and turn left into Walmer Street and continue downhill to the Kew Boulevard. The course follows the boulevard along until the Studley Park Road overpass.
5km runners do a U-turn shortly after the overpass and proceed back along the same route, but on the opposite side of the road. Please stay on the correct side of the road for safety reasons and to ensure course distance accuracy.
10km and 15km runners turn left after the Studley Park Road overpass and complete a single lap of the ‘monument’ loop and then rejoin the main boulevard by making a left hand turn. Both 10km and 15km runners perform a U-turn at their respective turn point and proceed directly back along the boulevard to Nolan Ave WITHOUT completing the loop again.
The course is scenic and somewhat hilly along the Kew, Yarra Boulevard.
Roads used by the course will be closed to traffic from 7:30am until 11:00am. Please keep to the LEFT HAND SIDE of the centre of the road at all times. Participants disregarding marshals’ instructions will be disqualified. Participants who cross the center line on the road are running off the course and will be disqualified. Participants still on the course after 11:30am when roads re-open are encouraged to complete the course but must do so on the footpath rather than the roads as cars will be re-entering the course.
