Run For The Kids 2015

Run For The Kids is on Sunday 29th March 2015 for the Royal Children's Hospital Appeal.

In the Herald Sun/CityLink Run for the Kids, all participants have the opportunity to be sponsored by family, friends and workmates. All money raised by sponsored runners will go to the Good Friday Royal Children's Hospital Appeal.

Long Course Details

14.38km course
Start time is 9.15am

The Herald Sun/CityLink Run for the Kids long course incorporates all of the unique features that have made it a landmark event and gives participants access to normally off-limit roads.

The race village and start/finish area are in Kings Domain, making it easy for family and friends who are not competing to be part of the fun and close to the action.

We thank CityLink once again for its outstanding support in giving competitors access to both Bolte Bridge and Domain Tunnel. The race starts at Kings Domain in Alexandra Avenue, right next to the Alexandra Gardens, heads over Swan Street Bridge, into Batman Avenue and through the Domain Tunnel.

Coming off Bolte Bridge with its million dollar views, runners travel back into the city via Docklands along Waterfront Promenade and New Quay Promenade, a new feature of the course. Runners then turn right onto the bike path alongside Harbour Esplanade where Channel 7 staff will be waiting at a drink station with entertainment and a special give-away item. Runners then turn left into Collins Street, right into Spencer Street and cross the river again, turn left into Yarra Promenade with Crown Entertainment Complex on one side and the Yarra on the other, then down St Kilda Road via Flinders Street, past the Arts Centre and finishing in Linlithgow Avenue.

Short Course Details

5.2km course
Start time is 8.40am

A shorter 5.2km scenic course is also available to allow those participants who do not feel comfortable about running or jogging 14.38km but wish to be involved in the event and play a significant part in raising money for the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal. The short course starts in Alexandra Avenue, does a circuit of the Yarra River via Birrarung Marr and Federation Square, and then down St Kilda Road, along Birdwood Avenue and u-turns back to the finish in Linlithgow Avenue.

Time limits

There are two cut-off times that will be strictly enforced:

All participants in the 14.38km event must complete the Westgate Freeway (approximately 6km) by 10.30am. A pick-up bus will collect any participant who fails to meet this cut-off time and take them across Bolte Bridge to the drink station at Pearl River Rd, located 9km into the course, where they may continue the race.

All participants (14.38km and 5.2km events) must complete the entire course by 12.00noon. Any participant who remains on the course after this time does so at their own risk.


The 2015 Herald Sun/CityLink Run for the Kids will be capped.
Race organisers are encouraging entrants to register early to avoid missing out.

Date: Sunday 29th of March 2015
Time: 8.40am & 9.15am
