MRC Foundation 'Walk For Phil'
Saturday 27 April, 2019
The MRC Foundation 'Walk For Phil' took place on Saturday 27 April, 2019. 37 walkers braved the cold Melbourne morning to support our amazing event charities by walking between Melbourne's premier racecourses. We finished up with a group photo in the mounting yard and a buffet lunch at the Victorian Owners and Breeders Race Day at Caulfield.
This year, we introduced a new distance available for those who wanted to walk with their families or planned on attending the races. This short 8 km course started from the beautiful St Kilda beach and finished with everyone at Caulfield Racecourse. There was also the full 24 km course for those looking for a fun challenge, walking between Moonee Valley, Flemington, and Caulfield Racecourses..
After the amazing feedback from last year, the post-walk gala event made a return. This year finished as part of the Victorian Owners and Breeders day at Caulfield Racecourse, so participants could share in the exciting race day atmosphere while celebrating their achievement.
