What you'll do

We'll meet at Federation Square and begin with some fun activities to get to know everyone before exploring Melbourne’s grooviest streets and hidden laneways discovering places you'd never find on your own! Melbourne’s famous street art culture is unlike any other and on this running tour, you will explore Hosier Lane, AC/DC Lane and a few other laneways that I’ll keep as a surprise for you during the tour. This 8km running adventure will take you laneway hopping, sharing with you the iconic shops, bars and cafes that Melbournians love to flock to, so you’ll feel just like a local. Learn more about Melbourne’s rich history as I share stories from the past, present (and future….) and fun facts about the city with you. Witness Melbourne’s distinct variation between the modern high rise architecture and older Victorian style buildings, learning how the two mesh and how both are quintessential in shaping Melbourne’s culture. As we run past the landmarks that shape Melbourne, there will be an ample amount of time to make sure you get that Instagram worthy photo. As we reach the end of the tour, we will head one of the quirky laneway cafes that Melbourne is so famous for a morning caffeine fix!
