ABOUT IMF
THE INDIGENOUS MARATHON FOUNDATION

Half our race profits go to charity partner, the Indigenous Marathon Project. Through the profits of our last event in 2019, we donated $12,629 to the Foundation. Here is a little bit about their good work:

The Indigenous Marathon Project (IMP) was established in 2009 by world marathon champion, Rob de Castella, and in 2010 four Indigenous Australians created history as the first to run in the world’s biggest marathon – The New York City Marathon.

The IMP has grown significantly with 109 graduates finishing a major international marathon, including New York, Boston, Tokyo, London, Paris and Berlin, and completing a compulsory education in health and leadership.

Acknowledgement to Country The de Castella Run acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional custodians of this country and acknowledges their connection to culture, land and community. Our event is on the traditional Country of Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung peoples of the Kulin nation. We thank traditional custodians – past, present and emerging – who care for Country so we get to enjoy its majestic beauty.
