The Yarra’s Edge Progressive Marathon returns to Docklands this May for its second consecutive year.

Developer Mirvac invites locals and others to complete 42.2 kms over stages, at their own pace between May 4 and May 18. Participants can complete the distance by strolling or sprinting during this two-week period.

On May 18, everyone will cross the finish line to end the marathon and enjoy a celebratory event at Yarra’s Edge.

Apart from promoting health and fitness, the event also supports breast cancer patients. The funds being raised through the $25 registration fee and any other donations will go to Think Pink, a charity that supports breast cancer patients and their families.

Mirvac’s Victorian residential general manager Elysa Anderson said: “Wellbeing is important to Mirvac and is emphasised in all our communities with dedicated wellness facilities to promote a healthy lifestyle for residents.”

“Mirvac has been working with Think Pink since its inception over eight years ago, assisting over 3000 women who have accessed Think Pink’s services.”

Participants also have a chance to win prizes for their accomplishments like most money raised and first to complete the marathon, with the biggest prize being a “Day on the Bay” cruise for six people by Pleasure Cruising Club Docklands.

After registration, participants will download Strava, a free fitness-tracking app, to log in their kilometres and get started.
