ABOUT RELIEF RUN

Australia is on fire and we’re using our footsteps to support those in need. Relief Run is completely virtual – you can run anytime, anywhere globally on January 18th and/or 19th 2020 with all proceeds supporting the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.

Australia is burning and the effects of the recent bushfires has been widespread and devastating. Melbourne-based ultramarathon runner, Samantha Gash, and Nic Davidson have created a virtual Relief Run. Please register to the event via www.reliefrun.com.au. 100% of your $50AUD fee will go as a donation to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund. Lets collectively use our footsteps to support those who have lost loved ones, their homes, and their critical needs in the face of disaster.

Your run or walk can take place anywhere, at any time on the weekend of Saturday January 18th and Sunday January 19th 2020. There are 21.1km half marathon and 5km options for you to sign up for. We welcome runners of all abilities to join us for this important cause.

While you can participate solo, some of us are choosing to rally together and are holding community Relief Run events around the world. We encourage you to share this event as wide as you can and register your own Club event. Many organised runs have been listed on www.reliefrun.com.au
