This is a free public event taking place on the forecourt of Arts Centre Melbourne on Sunday 12 March from 4.30pm-9.30pm.

Fun Run is a joyous community spectacle that pushes one man to the limits of his endurance.  Our fearless hero is Melbourne artist Tristan Meecham, who in homage to the Greek messenger Pheidippides, runs a gruelling 42 km on a treadmill live on stage, supported by a sizzling soundtrack, hundreds of performers and participants drawn from a multitude of Melbourne communities, dancers from Indigenous Hip Hop Projects and special guests.

Join the fun and cheer on our running man. Will he hit the wall or complete his quest?

This remarkable free event for the whole family has it all … shiny lycra, gleaming muscles, bouncing pom poms and a massive Fun Run Flash Mob that everyone can participate in.

Fun Run turns ordinary moves into the extraordinary – with non-stop heart pumping action for the entire performance. Audiences can arrive at the start, middle or end or even better, stay, play and dance their way through the whole event!
