Maribyrnong River - Essendon. Melbourne's Inner North West has several running/walking options along the Maribyrnong River. The standard 4.2 kilometers lap runs between the Maribyrnong Road Bridge (near the Anglers Tavern) and the Afton Street footbridge. It is a flat course that can be extended by continuing under the Maribynong Road bridge, through the pipe makers park to the Riverside Golf Club foot bridge, then back along the opposite river bank. This adds 2 kilometers. Alternatively "the goat track" next door at Aberfeldie Park provides for hill work and intervals with its 1.8 kilometers track of sandy undulation.
