Heroes Assemble! Join your favourite Super Hero team at the 3km Marvel Kids Run. This event is designed for kids aged between four and fourteen*. It's about fun, physical activity and challenging yourself in a team

Held at 10am on SATURDAY, 26 JULY (the day before the main event), the Marvel Kids Run is a 3km off-road untimed run around the banks of the Yarra.

While the kids run, parents can visit The Run Melbourne Expo, presented by Running Fit to check out all the latest running gear (with exclusive sales/discounts), to seek advice from trainers, dieticians and athletes, or to mingle with fellow parents and Run Melbourne participants.
