Melbourne City Race Weekend 2019



Your 2019 Oceania Road Trip doesnt end in Wangaratta – continue your orienteering journey down the Hume, and be part of the first ever Melbourne City Race.  Three days – three races – discover Melbourne from a new point of view!

City Races are long distance events in sprint style – complex urban areas, short legs, lots of direction changes and route choice – but over  3-10 km.  They feature colour maps at sprint scale, and Sportident/SI Air punching.

The Melbourne City Race venues will be easily accessible by public transport.  Enjoy all that Melbourne has to offer – fabulous food, amazing shopping, and accommodation for all budgets.

City Races have taken Europe by storm – now it’s Australia’s turn.  Don’t miss the chance to say “I was there in 2019!”
