Melbourne Social Walks - Hiking and Camping

A great way to meet new people in Melbourne especially for Travelers that are looking for new friends.

I’ve been organising these for years so I’ve learnt a thing or two on what makes a good social group. Engagement is everything. There are loads of hiking groups that exist in Victoria alone but rarely utilitised.

EVERY fortnight without fail there is a hike. New people are always welcome.

Marathon in Australia

A marathon is a long-distance running event with an official distance of 42.195 kilometers, usually run as a road race. Participating in a marathon can be a challenging and rewarding experience, and there are a few things that you can expect when you decide to run one.

First, you will need to train for several months to build your stamina and endurance. Training for a marathon typically involves running several times a week, increasing the distance of your runs over time, and incorporating other forms of exercise such as strength training and cross-training. It's essential to be consistent with your training and to listen to your body to avoid injury.

On race day, you can expect a large turnout of runners and spectators. As a result, you will need to arrive at the starting line well before the race begins to pick up your bib and have enough time to warm up and stretch. During the race, you will run through a course that is typically lined with cheering spectators, and you will likely pass several aid stations where you can grab a drink or a snack.

After crossing the finish line, you will be greeted with cheers, collect your medal, and enjoy the post-race festivities. You will feel a sense of accomplishment, and it will be a moment you will cherish for the rest of your life.
