The Mile to Marathon at Birrurang Marr in Melbourne, Victoria on Sunday, 19 August 2018 is a fantastic new fun event open to all abilities and all ages.
The marathon has been broken down into down to 26 x 1 mile stages. You can register as a team of 26 and do 1 mile each or teams of 13, 6, 2 or 1 and do multiple miles. Each mile will be timed separately from the time competitors cross the start line and until they cross the lap finish line. Competitors will enter the transition area to pass on the timing chip to the team's next runner. The last competitor will then run through the finish line to record the teams overall time.
Teams can include members running more than one leg of the race so you’re not required to have exactly 26, 13, or 6 members. For example: If you have 23 teammates wanting to race, choose the "Team of 26" option and 3 members can run twice.
