FAQs

Q: Where can I get changed?

A: We don't have guaranteed access to changing facilities at any of our running venues, but our Albert Park run starts and finishes very close to the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre (MSAC) and you can walk in there and get changed/showered for free. They also have lockers (a small charge is levied to use them).

Q: Where can I leave my bag?

A: At The Tan, we leave all of our belongings at the cottage next to where we meet for the run or in your/someone's car. At Albert Park, we recommend you use the MSAC lockers (Southside only) or leave your belongings in your/someone else's car. 

Q: Does the weather impact the run schedule?

Please note that we aim to run/walk in all seasons and just about all weather conditions. However, we do draw the line when it comes to risking the safety of our members and so we have an extreme weather policy that can be triggered from time to time.  Check our Facebook pages (Public or MFR Financial Members).
