Achilles Melbourne is Melbourne’s premier running club for people with a disability. Pre-Covid, they ran regular training sessions on Sundays at the iconic Tan running track and at Beauty Park on the Mornington Peninsula. They also connect people with a disability with local running clubs and public running events.
Whether you have a disability or you wish to run/walk alongside people with a disability, we run/walk together to achieve individual fitness goals. See more information on their website here.
