Team DEA is back for the Melbourne Marathon Festival in 2015 after a stunning debut last year. This year we get the extra excitement of finishing on the hallowed grounds of the MCG.
The Melbourne Marathon is a great way to get fit, challenge yourself, make new friends, support DEA, your health, and the health of our planet.
The scientific health community (WHO, Lancet, BMJ, AMA) warns that climate change is the biggest threat to human health that we currently face. Our team is running to raise awareness of the health risks of climate inaction, and the health benefits to be gained from action! We are raising funds to support the vital work DEA does to achieve this.
Everybody, from new runners to seasoned experts, is welcome to join us. There is no need to be a member of DEA, so please invite your friends, family, colleagues and neighbours to get involved, or support our team through sponsorship.
