Runners descend on Docklands

Runners descend on Docklands Image

Thousands of runners passed through Docklands in the early stages of Run Melbourne’s half marathon on Sunday, July 28.

The 21.1km course started at the corner of Flinders and Elizabeth streets in the CBD, before runners hit Collins St and turned right onto Harbour Esplanade.

From here, competitors ran past Marvel Stadium all the way to Docklands Drive, where they turned left and did a loop of NewQuay.

Merging back onto Harbour Esplanade, runners ran back along the waterfront towards Victoria Harbour, eventually crossing the Yarra River at Webb Bridge, which represented the 5km mark.

After the Docklands section of the run, participants continued along Southbank and completed the rest of the run around the Botanical Gardens and sports precinct, before finishing at Birrarung Marr.

Some NewQuay and Victoria Harbour residents were temporarily land-locked between (approximately) 6:50am and 8:10am on the Sunday morning as runners came past in droves.

This year was the 12th staging of Run Melbourne, an annual event that offers a 10km, 5km and 3km race alongside the half marathon.

Over 20,000 participants were expected to hit the streets in this year’s event, some of whom were raising money for charities close to their heart.

This year’s goal was $2 million.
