Take on Run Melbourne as one of our Crew

Sunday July 28

Join our Ground Crew team to help keep our doctors in the air by rising to your own challenge – taking part in Run Melbourne and raising vital funds to help save lives!

About the event

Run Melbourne takes place on Sunday July 28.

Run this city and take in all of Melbourne’s iconic landmarks, feel the buzz of the live entertainment and soak up all the energy that Run Melbourne has to offer. It’s time to reclaim the streets and join a crowd of thousands.

Choose your challenge from 5km, 10km and 21.1km.

Why get involved?

The Royal Flying Doctor Service delivers extensive primary health care and 24-hour emergency service to those who live, work and travel throughout Australia. As a not-for-profit organisation, we rely on your generosity to ensure our doctors can reach those who urgently need help.

27m kilometres flown in the last year
775 patient contacts every day
67 aircraft in active service

A service that helps someone every 2 minutes of every day is bound to be resource-intensive, but without it the human cost would be far greater. We need people like you to step up and make the difference between life and death for so many Australians whose access to healthcare is limited.

“If The Flying Doctor wasn’t there and I couldn’t get the specialist medical treatment I needed, my children wouldn’t have a mum.”

What you'll get

Whether you need help getting sponsored or fundraising inspiration, we’ll be on hand every step of the way. Plus you’ll also get:

  • This year’s official crew running top (available once you’ve created your online fundraising page).
  • Access to the Ground Crew marquee – your space to relax, grab some refreshments and recover after all that running.

  • An even greater feeling of satisfaction when you cross the finishing line, knowing that you’ve conquered more than just the course.

Yes, I'd like to join the team


We’re really excited you’ve signed up to join the Crew, and to take part in this year’s Run Melbourne.
You’ll need to go through two more simple steps to complete the sign-up process:

  • 1. Set up your online fundraising page on Everyday Hero where you can share your story, contact your friends and family to ask for sponsorship, and take online donations securely.
  • 2.  Register yourself directly on the Run Melbourne (if you haven’t done so already) to secure your starting spot.

Once you’ve set up your fundraising page, we’ll send you your official Ground Crew running shirt.

You’ll receive an email from us very shortly with information on what happens next, and including details of the support you can expect from us in the build up to Race Day.

In the meantime, good luck with your training – and welcome to the Crew!
