SOFT Ireland are supporting the Melbourne Marathon 2022 for a reason.
Watch out for Projects created off this cause and all will be revealed!!!
We are prepared to go the distance for this one and have recruited Team Melbourne.
Be a part of Australia’s largest marathon and race alongside marathon legends. Circle around Albert Park Lake, Flinders Street Station, pass the St Kilda beach foreshore and cross the finish line at the MCG to cheers from supporters, family and friends. The Nike Melbourne Marathon is a competitive, adrenaline-filled race for those experienced in marathon running who want to set a PB on our fast and flat course, and is also perfect for first-timers and less experienced marathon runners.
