what is run australia run?
Run Australia Run is a range of Virtual Runs held throughout the year. Many of the Virtual running events will be held on Specific Days of the year, others will be ongoing runs over a period of time or kilometers.
The aim is to have as many people throughout Australia out running and walking for the benefit of their health and their hearts. This fits perfecty with our chosen Charity of Heart Kids.
We have ongoing runs to keep you motivated with Run Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Northern Territory, Western Australia, Tasmania, Canberra and ultimately Running across Australia. There is no time limit for these. Take as long as you want. The goal is to run across Australia. When you have run across a state like Queensland - 2027km or Victoria - 949km, you can receive the Run Queensland or Victoria Medal. Combine these runs within the States to make up the distances and then combine the States to Run across Australia and receive the Run Australia Medal.
We have ongoing runs to keep you motivated on your way to the big goal of Run Australia, with Specific Run Australia Run runs every 3-4 weeks. The kms for your Specific 5km events can count to the kms for a Main Run also. Some of our ongoing Runs are Run The Great Ocean Road, Run Sydney Harbour, Run Kangaroo Island, Run the Kati Thanda Pink Lake and Run Canberra. Check out the Runs TAB to see the full list.
