The Slums & Guns True Crime Running Tour explores Melbourne’s rather colourful past, revealing several spooky stories as runners discover the locations where many of the city’s most infamous crimes took place.

Discover Melbourne’s dark side on Fit City Tour’s Slums & Guns True Crime Running Tour. On this riveting city tour, runners will learn all about several true crime stories that took place on the pavement beneath their sneakers. Led by your very own Melbourne tour guide, this rather eerie tour has more plot twists than your favourite true crime podcast.

Our 9km running tour, operating daily at 9am, begins at the city’s cultural hub, Federation Square. This venue for the arts sits on the edge of Melbourne’s central business district, offering visitors the opportunity to enjoy a variety of restaurants and shops. As we embark on an adventure of mystery and intrigue, we’ll visit the scene of the horrific 1921 Gun Alley Murder and share stories of Melbourne’s most infamous serial killer, Frederick Deeming, better known by the name Jack the Ripper. Along the way, we’ll visit the vibrant Chinatown, settled in the 1850s during the Victorian gold rush, and known for being the longest continuous Chinese settlement in the Western World.
