About Us

We run to make a difference to Aussie kids in need throughout regional centers around Australia. Run Australia guarantee’s that 100% of every registration fee will go straight to the local cause in your community. That’s right, 100%! We facilitate an event like no other, full of festival fun, where people can run, walk or roll the streets of their local community, while raising much needed funds for a local children’s health-related project in your town.

Run Australia is an initiative by the Cotton On Group and is working towards improving the healthcare of young people in regional Australia.

How? It’s easy!

We facilitate a fun event like no other, where people can run, walk or roll the streets of their local community, while raising much needed funds for a local children’s health-related project in their town. The best part is, Run Australia guarantee’s 100% of every participant registration fee will go straight to the local cause in their community. That’s right, 100%!

So whether it’s the Children’s Ward in Ballarat or the Adolescent Ward in Newcastle, we need you to lace up and get involved!

Why are we different? We are 100% different!

  • Our events are run in regional centres with a population of 60,000+.
