We are thrilled to announce the MS Melbourne Run + Ride Festival will take place on
Sunday 28 August 2022
Thank you, sincerely, for your ongoing patience and support while we worked hard to secure a new date. This event was the first of many dozens of MS Events to be affected by the changes to city, our state and the world and we are thrilled to share that it will be back for you on Sunday 28 August 2022.
With a variety of run and ride distances to choose from, the MS Melbourne Run + Ride Festival, formerly known as the MS Melbourne Cycle + Half Marathon, has something to suit all ages, abilities and fitness levels.
From a 50km bike ride over the Westgate, to a half marathon finishing under the famous Flemington rose arbour, or even a 1km dash for the kids...there is a distance to suit everyone!

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic and often debilitating disease which attacks the central nervous system. It is the most common neurological disease in young adults and often attacks people at the time of their lives when they are planning families and building a career. Cases of MS are rising and over 25,600 Australians live with the condition, an increase of 4,400 in the past eight years.
