Important Information

  • You must register online by April 27th to receive a T-shirt, and you must bring proof of registration (either printed or on your phone).
  • Please arrive 30 minutes before the start time. Please allow time for parking.
  • Each participant must have a torch for health and safety reasons.
  • There will be no storage for personal items during the event, so please come ready to walk/run.
  • Please respect traffic wardens and event signage, and follow instructions on arrival. Help us keep our venues clean and place any litter in bins provided.
  • We strongly recommend all walkers to stay on the gravel path around the lake rather than the concrete path at the waters edge.
  • It's a good idea to bring a torch, adequate footwear and warm clothing. Also remember, it's Melbourne so keep an eye on the weather, you might need to bring a rain jacket or umbrella!
