Race Information

The Run The Tan Showcase consists of 5 events held at the iconic Tan Track in Melbourne.

The Public Fun Run event is open to everyone from serious runners to casual joggers, walkers and families.  Enter as an individual or create a team for your running club, work, or other groups to get an “official” time around The Tan. The Schools event is open to all school students representing their school and competing against other schools.

The Elite event is the main feature event representing the Top Male and Female Elite Athletes in Australia and some international guest athletes. It will also include the top Para Elite Athletes and Elite Race Walkers. Watch how fast these athletes can run around The Tan and if anyone can break the all-time records!

At the Celebrities event, you can rub shoulders or watch current and past professional athletes from other sporting codes (e.g. AFL, NRL, Soccer, Cricket, Basketball, Netball, Tennis, Racing, etc) and key sporting identities/ celebrities. Some will be running to show their support for mental health and others will be having a crack at getting their name in the Hall of Fame for the fastest players around The Tan.

The Emergency Services event is open to both current and retired employees/volunteers of all the Emergency Services Agencies (police, firefighters, ambulance, SES, Surf Life Savings, Corrections etc) and employees of the Australian Defence Force (ADF), Veterans and ADF civilians.

There are limited spots for the Public Fun Run.
