Melbourne residents and visitors had the chance to battle it out for their own Grand Prix honours today at the inaugural Australian Grand Prix Run.
Over 1,500 runners of all fitness levels took to the Albert Park circuit – which is ready to stage the F1 season-opener next weekend – to enjoy the unique experience of a foot race around a ready-to-go Grand Prix venue.
With a choice of two runs over five or ten kilometres – our event photographer Ming Ham did both! – fans were joined by a host of event figures, including Australian Grand Prix ambassador Chelsea Scanlan, event CEO Andrew Westacott and V8 Supercars driver Alexandre Prémat.
Congratulations to Steve Kelly – wearing bib #448 – who won the 10km event!
Shown are a few snaps courtesy of our very own photographer, Ming Ham, who told us:
“The inaugural Australian Grand Prix Run was a great joy for runners and families who took part in the race, despite the hot conditions today.
“It was great to see so many runners on the Formula 1 circuit – I’ll definitely be running in next year’s event!”
