The Wellness Walk and Research Run

The Wellness Walk and Research Run

9:00 AM - 1:30 PM Sunday 6th October, 2019
Alexandra Gardens, Boathouse Drive, Melbourne, Vic
Support people with cancer by walking or running with Olivia on Sunday 6 October in Melbourne. 

Funds raised will support cancer research breakthroughs and provide access to world-leading wellness and supportive care programs, giving patients hope during their cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery.  

At the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre  we are committed to delivering the very best in research, patient care, and world leading wellness and supportive care programs. We put our patients at the heart of everything we do. This includes focusing on their mind and spirit and not just on their bodies. 

With a brand new location, on course entertainment, a yoga session on event day, one of a kind event village and lots more, bring the whole family down including your four legged family members!

Course & location

Choose between two distances of 5km or 10km and walk or run. The event village is located at Alexandra Gardens (palm side), Boathouse Drive, Melbourne and the walk or run will take place around the Tan Track (Melbourne).

Participants will be staggered for both distances and everyone will start and finish in the heart of the event village. This year we will not time the run, if you would like to time yourself please note, there will be points during the course you may have to stop to cross roads.

All fitness levels are welcomed and both distances are all-inclusive, pram friendly and even suitable for your four-legged family members.

Event village

After your walk or run enjoy the festivities of our event village. This is a perfect opportunity for the whole family to enjoy all the activities and entertainment on offer as well as the delicious food. Follow us on social media to keep updated on activities on offer!

You can also be stress-free during your time at the event by using our bag drop area located in the event village. Simply look out for the signs upon arrival. Please be aware, our friendly volunteers will be manning the bag drop area, however we will not be responsible for stolen or lost items.
