More than 100 entrants took part in the The Run for Farmer Health - part of the Melbourne marathon on Sunday; one even donned a cow onesie.
The run aimed to raise the profile, and funding, for Hamilton's National Centre for Farmer Health.
One runner, Edward Kus, completed 13km of the 42km course in a cow onesie.
The Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) teamed up with the Centre to #Run4FarmerHealth in the marathon.
"We are committed to advocating for this centre and are prepared to literally 'walk the talk' and run in solidarity to support NCFH," VFF president Peter Tuohey said.
Centre director Sue Brumby said 132 people ran or walked to help raise money and awareness for the centre.
"What was interesting was hearing people talking about it among themselves - why it is different and why it is important," Ms Brumby said.
