Price: Free entry
Run your way from St Kilda to LA.

Update (4 April 2018): Registrations for this event are now full, but you can still join the waitlist for a chance to attend.

We’re hosting a run ending in a decadent feast. That might sound a little familiar to eagle-eyed readers, but this one comes with a payoff you don’t want to miss.

Last October we teamed up with Nike and Juanita Peaches in Brunswick for a run that sent runners on a circuit around Princes Park in Carlton.

This April we’re doing it all again but southside – and this time two lucky runners will win the chance to head to LA with Nike.

At 10:30am on Sunday April 8 we’re inviting runners to meet at the newly revamped Village Belle Hotel in St Kilda. After having the opportunity to try on the new Nike Epic React, runners will head off on a 5km course around the suburb.

At the finish line Village Belle will put on a spread including Southern-fried chicken wings, crab, pork and vego baos, mini-corn dogs, crispy chicken-parma fingers and more. (Also includes gluten-free and vego options.) Baked goods will be on-hand thanks to local pastry masters Baker D. Chirico, and ice-cream in the house care of Pidapipo. Beer, cider, jugs of Aperol and Pimm’s, and live entertainment will round out the day.

That’s not all. Two participants on the day will earn the chance for themselves and a friend to participate in Nike Go LA – a 10km run down a major LA highway in the moviemaking district of Culver City. Winners will fly to LA and take part in an epic four-day experience with Nike, including the 10km run. The trip includes flights, accommodation and on-ground transport covered in LA, as well as everything you need to get running.

From 10:30am–1:30pm.
