Race day information

Where to find Foodbank on the day

Foodbank Marquee, Event Village, Federation Square

We’ll be in the event village below Federation Square alongside the Yarra River. Look out for our purple logo. Visit us to find out how Team Foodbank is helping to feed hungry Victorians. Our marquee is also a great, central location to use as a meeting point after the event. Please see the event day map for the exact location on the Foodbank marquee.

Drink station and cheer point, on route

The Foodbank drink station and cheer point can be found on Petticoat Lane. If you’re going to be supporting a runner, join us and cheer them on from here. It’s a short walk from Federation Square, just across Princes Bridge, and then down the path that runs between Alexandra Gardens, and Alexandra Avenue. Please see the event day map for the exact location of the drink station and cheer point.

If you have any queries about race day, please email ua.gr1501050649o.air1501050649otciv1501050649knabd1501050649oof@g1501050649nisia1501050649rdnuf1501050649
