Grab your runners and get involved in the Monash Global Walk/Run

Staff and students are invited to take a step towards better health in the Monash Global Walk/Run this month.

The biannual walk/run is delivered in conjunction with Wellbeing at Monash,TeamMONASH™, and Monash Sport. Participants can choose between a three-kilometre walk or a five-kilometre run.

The starter’s pistol is scheduled to go off at 12.15pm on Monday 27 October and participating sites include The Alfred, Bendigo, Berwick, Caulfield, Clayton, MMC Clayton, Parkville and Peninsula campuses.

This year the Global Walk/Run coincides with the start of the 10,000 Steps Challenge, giving participants the opportunity to kick-start their tally of steps while getting outside and socialising with colleagues.

Both challenges promote health and wellbeing at Monash and, as a bonus, a Health Smart Lunch will be provided on the day as well as the chance to win one of a number of great prizes. Gold coin donations will be encouraged to raise money for Andrology Australia’s research and education initiatives about men’s health.

Registration for each of the walk/runs can be made online, and instructions on how to register for the 10,000 Steps Challenge are also available online.
