Brimbank Park: Melbourne's Finest

This is the second get-together at this fabulous park in northwest of Melbourne. Brimbank Park is my old stomping ground and I used to train here until I'd worn through my tyres. It's an amphitheatre-shaped space, a great basin carved out of the basaltic plain by the Maribyrnong River over millions of years. The brim of the bank on the western side is a full 55 metres above the river - a ten-fold version of the perfect number. To the east the slopes rise more gently and the great curves of the Maribyrnong flow round thick native bushland, home to a huge range of birds and mammals. There are bronzewings and thornbills, kangaroos and wallabies, falcons and kites - and lots of rabbits. 

MELBOURNE MARATHON FESTIVAL

40th Anniversary of Australia's Biggest Marathon!

The Melbourne Marathon has been growing steadily since over 2,000 runners hauled their way from Frankston to Melbourne Town Hall in 1978. It's now Australia's biggest, with over 8,000 people taking on the full distance and over 35,000 entries across the range of events. This year is the 40th race and it's looking like the most spectacular ever.

This all makes for the perfect opportunity for fast-footed type 1's - and those who are not so fast - to show the whole community that type 1 diabetes is no barrier to healthy exercise and strong competition. There's a fantastic range of separate distances you can run or walk. As well as the full 42.195 km, there's a half marathon, a 10 km run, a 5.7 km run and a 3 km walk. Something for everyone.
