They say no trip to Melbourne is complete without a jog along the tan track 

It is a 3.8km track around the Melbourne Botanical Gardens. Fun fact: the fastest time for one lap was done by Craig Mottram, done in 10 minutes 12 seconds. Can you challenge him? The gardens here are just stunning. It isn’t too flat, there is in fact a section known as the heart break hill. You can do some hill sprints, intervals, tempo runs, or loop a long run over here.
