Melbourne City SportsSuccessfully conducted for more than 18 years, Melbourne City Sports (MCS) entertains Victorians by encouraging community participation in a variety of sporting activities.
Professionally developed and organised these activity programs are managed by the Victorian YMCA in partnership with the City of Melbourne.
Aimed to encourage community participation in physical activity, regular events including the Corporate Challenge, Corporate Cup, Super Sunset Series, Corporate Sports Days and Special Events, provide a respite from hectic work schedules and fast-tracked lifestyles while offering a chance to savour the outdoors and enjoy individual or group activities.
Greater productivity, better concentration and stress minimisation are some of the benefits of exercise, with team-based activities helping to create a more cohesive, co-operative workplace.
Fortnightly, team-based running/walking program

This program is aimed at city workers who are motivated to be healthy, with a focus on improving performance and encouraging the pursuit of personal bests and the spirit of team work.
Conducted twice a year (Autumn and Spring seasons) during lunch -time and runs fortnightly over a 14 week period. Consisting of Men's, Women's, Mixed and Walkers categories, part of the program's appeal is the ability to participate even if you are unable to make it on the day.
