Run Melbourne for human rights

A big thanks to all our Team Amnesty runners who participated in Run Melbourne 2016! Want to participate in Run Melbourne 2017 and run to defend human rights?

When: Saturday 23 & Sunday 24 July 2016
Where: Federation Square, Melbourne

If you’re up for the challenge, you can join the 5km, 10km, or the half-marathon. There is even a 3km run for kids!

Your first donation of $50 can help us collect testimonies from survivors and families affected by human rights violations. We rely on contributions from people like you. Amnesty does not accept funding from governments or political organisations. This financial independence means we are free to campaign with objectivity and impartiality and to defend human rights worldwide.

We’ll send you a welcome pack to help kick start your fundraising.

How to get involved

Getting involved is easy! All you need to do is:

  • Register with Team Amnesty on the Run Melbourne website and choose Amnesty International on page two of the registration process.
  • Then you can go ahead and set up your own fundraising page, by visiting the Team Amnesty page (we’ll have a link for this shortly!) and registering for free.
  • If you have any questions, give our Events and Fundraising Team a call on (02) 8396 7668 or email us at

2017 is set to be our biggest year at Run Melbourne yet, and we can’t wait to see the Team Amnesty runners standing out in the crowd while standing up for human rights.

We look forward to having you on the team!
