Love Letter to Cup Week

Cup Week sparks joy and devotion in us all! We fall head over heels each spring as one of our true loves draws near. This year, to celebrate the 2020 Melbourne Cup Carnival, the VRC and 3AW’s Breakfast with Ross and Russel are asking Australians to share their fondest Cup Week memories, expressed as a love letter!

Was it your first ever time watching the Lexus Melbourne Cup in person? Did you witness a champion win on Flemington’s famous straight? Is it the traditions you have shared with friends and family, coming together for ‘the race that stops a nation™’?

We want to uncover the most fascinating, amusing and emotional tales from Cup Week’s rich and cherished history. Share a precious moment and fall in love all over again! There are some wonderful prizes for the most creative, inspiring and heartfelt love letters!

To enter, follow these simple instructions and tips:

1. Write a love letter to Cup Week telling us in 350 words or less your favourite Melbourne Cup Carnival memory! You must begin your love letter with “Dear Cup Week, I love you…

2. Head to the Love Letter To Cup Week Website

3. Upload your love letter and complete the form to enter!

As part of this competition, we are also inviting entrants to make a donation to VRC and 3AW charity partner, Very Special Kids!
