Meet your guide and small group of no more than 10 people in central Melbourne for your morning start. After warming up, set out on a scenic route around central Melbourne—the speed is set to suit the group’s slowest members, so don’t worry about being left behind!

Along the way, get a feel for local life in modern, multi-cultural Melbourne, as you explore the city’s atmospheric laneways and seek out hidden gems typically overlooked by tourists. Jog past the bold street art along Hosier and Union lanes; weave through the maze-like streets of Chinatown; and pause to admire landmarks such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, Old Melbourne Gaol, and the Block Arcade. Listen as your guide points out popular local haunts, including shops, bars, and cafés, as well as safe running routes that you can try during the rest of your stay.

After an invigorating morning run, your tour ends at a local café, where you are treated to a coffee.
