The Carlton Classic Marathon at Princes Park allows runners to experience the beautiful mid-summer scenery and the chance to run right next to the Melbourne CBD.
All races run on a measured 4.22 km loop (one tenth marathon distance). Full marathoners run 10 laps and half marathoners run 5 laps to complete the race. As the event is taking place during the summer period, there is a very relaxed cut-off time for runners to finish their race.
As well as the full and half Marathon, there is a 4.22km Mini Marathon Family Fun Run.
