It all started in 2016 when fourteen people from Scope inspired us all by participating in the Melbourne Marathon.

Last year as Scope Team Ability we tackled the run with the largest team of participants yet. All distances were covered on the day, with Scope taking part in all five event distances.

This year we are excited to form the Scope Team Ability, once again. Join us as we rally together to celebrate our achievements and recognise people of all abilities.

The Melbourne Marathon is on 14 October at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). There is an event for everyone with distances ranging from a three kilometre walk to a full 42 kilometre marathon.
