The Melbourne City Race Weekend on October 8 and 9 is the perfect add-on to your AUS Champs trip to Victoria! Spend a few days relaxing in Melbourne, then gear up to be part of Australia’s only City Race, back for its third edition.
The weekend features three amazing races:
Saturday am – WAVERLEY STADIUM, Mulgrave
An exciting new urban map featuring the famous Waverley Park, home to AFL teams Hawthorn and St Kilda during the 1990s – a must for sports history fans! Expect a compact but complex map, based around the heritage-listed stadium and oval.
Saturday pm – TATTERSON, Keysborough
A short distance south lies a fascinating pocket of woodlands and wetlands, sports facilities, a unique playground, and safe, quiet streets. But the main attraction is the notorious “tree maze!”. The race format will pit you against your rivals head to head!
Note: public transport is limited; transport by car is recommended for both Saturday events,
Sunday am – MCR at WILLIAMSTOWN
Taking in the wonderful seaside sights, sounds (and smells) of the historic township of Williamstown, the 2022 Melbourne City Race will be an incredible mix of complex urban navigation, coastal scenery, maritime history, and the bustling village atmosphere that the area is famous for. Williamstown is a short distance from the CBD by train, or an easy drive over the West Gate Bridge. Afterwards, enjoy the local Sunday market, grab lunch in one of the numerous cafes or pubs, visit Scienceworks, cycle the Foreshore Trail, or soak up the spectacular views across Hobsons Bay. Entries will open on Eventor in early August. More details at www.melbournecityrace.com.au
