The 2019 Melbourne Marathon event set a new record for the 42 year-long Festival history, with over 37,000 participants across the five distances! Making it Australia’s largest marathon EVER!
The day saw entrants of all ages and abilities banding together to sprint, run, jog, walk and wheel past some of Melbourne’s most iconic landmarks.
The Active Feet Runners Expo was no different! It was a huge 4 day event held at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground. We had a ball getting the opportunity to meet and help so many of our wider Active Feet community.
We were thrilled to see so many of you, young and old, getting involved with our ASICS colouring wall, sporting our fun #af tattoos and snapping a winning shot at our photo wall.
We would also like to thank you for your generous donations to Footscape as part of our onsite shoe donation initiative. Footscape is a Melbourne based charity that works within the community to help some of our most vulnerable and disadvantaged members by providing them with suitable footwear solutions to improve their quality of life. They were extremely grateful for the masses of pairs and are looking forward to matching them to their new owners soon.
Remember: we take Footscape shoe donations YEAR ROUND in store. So next time you are ready for a new pair of runners, bring in your old ones and give them a second life.
Huge thank you to all the runners, walkers, supporters, volunteers, organisers, ambassadors and thousands who visited us at the Active Feet Asics expo tent. Our team were busy fitting hundreds of you in new shoes, socks, accessories and more! (And we loved it!). Here are some of our favourite photos from the festival.
