Berry Long Run

10 August 2024

The Berry Long is an ultra-marathon that takes place in the beautiful Lerderderg Forest west of Melbourne. The event has raised nearly $140,000 since it started in 2014, and every year new people join to test themselves and raise funds for Berry Street. In our tenth year, we’re encouraging people who have run marathons before and want to push themselves that little bit further.
