Tan Ultra 2013
There's a distance for every type of runner at this annual event on the city's Tan Track.
Attention all aesthetes, athletes and aspiring Olympians: the annual Tan Ultra is back on August 11. The Tan is a familiar track to most Melbournites, and there will be 100km, 50km, 42km, 30km, 12km and 4km distances in 2013. Still need motivation to lace up your running shoes? It's a trailplus event, which supports Canteen and raises awareness of young people living with cancer. Take a look back at your own carefree childhood and think about how you can contribute to someone else's.
The Tan Ultra is a great event to support and every participant will receive a certificate or a medal. Yay! Registrations close on August 6 and you'll probably experience a combination of rain, hail and shine while training, what with Melbourne's crazy weather. Remember, you don't have to bust any records just keep the 'steady' in between 'ready' and 'go'.
