Who are the beneficiaries of this event?

All funds raised go towards the implementation of The Run Beyond Project in high schools. This process begins with the training of teachers to deliver the project within their own school setting.

Teachers then work with their school's welfare team to identify candidates who meet our selection criteria which relate to a broad spectrum of needs and marginalised groups, including refugee students, indigenous students, students in out-of-home-care and students who have been impacted by domestic violence and long-term parental unemployment.

The project commences once students have been selected, approved and accept their positions. Funds are used to provide professionally-fitted shoes and apparel for our students as they work towards their Goal Race. Travel, accomodation, race entries, and associated costs are all funded by Run Beyond.

Our project provides a support network to students who otherwise lack these opportunities. The opportunities we provide empower students to thrive beyond the completion of the project, and build a more inclusive running community as a more diverse range of faces grace our startlines!

How many members can I have in my team?

Short answer - As many as you like.

Longer (but still short) answer - Ideally, enough to make it a challenge. You've got 21 days to make 1000km. If you and a friend could do that, then try for a team of 2. If you think it might take 20 friends to make the distance, then start recruiting!
