In the soft glow of the first light you can see the silhouette of the bridges, skyline, glimmer off the water and the lights from small crew boats on the river. Sounds dreamy, right! Welcome to running along the Yarra River trail in Melbourne at daybreak.
Watching Melbourne wake up and come alive… It’s just a part of the day you would totally miss if you stayed in bed.
So what makes Melbourne such a cool running city. Everything! The Yarra Trail is filled with walkers, runners and a ton of cyclists. You will even find crew coaches riding bikes along the river following their team/individual boats using a megaphone. It just seems so quaint and big city all at once. I love it!
