Marathon runs through Southbank streets

17 Oct 2011

Marathon runs through Southbank streets Image

Runners from far and wide descended on the streets of Southbank during October for the Melbourne Marathon.

Our section of the course was near the end of the gruelling 42km race – down Southbank Boulevard and around the back of the arts centre to City Rd.

Many of the runners won’t have fond memories of Southbank, as pain was written all over their faces and fatigued running styles, knowing they were edging closer to the finish line.

The half-marathon race also came through Southbank.

The race raises money for Cerebral Palsy Education Centre and the James Macready-Bryan Foundation, and this year donated $258,935.

The winner of the elite male category was Japhet Kipkorir who successfully defended his title from last year. First home in the elite women’s was Irene Mogaka.
