Of every registration fee goes directly to the Local Cause

Since 2009, Run Australia has raised millions of dollars in support of local causes. Our partner cities nominate their community cause and we give 100% of registration fees going directly to them. Simple!

Our festive, fun-filled events are open to anyone, no matter what your fitness level. We love to celebrate what we've achieved post-race in our Event Village, which is full of activities, entertainment and good vibes for all the family.

Since day one, Run Australia has established a strong presence in Geelong and Ballarat, with funds raised making a visible difference to the children's wards of the local hospitals.

Paediatric Rehabilitation Services

The Barwon Health Foundation and the Cotton On Group have worked in tandem for the past seven years, through the efforts of Run Geelong, to raise much-needed funds for the Children’s Ward.

Since 2009, the partnership has seen the completion of the redevelopment of the Children’s Ward and the redevelopment of the Special Care Nursery and Maternity Day Assessment Unit, which supports the next generation of mums and their unborn babies. The Run Geelong events have been responsible for over $3.07 million in donations to the hospital, with the partnership only continuing to grow year on year.

In 2017, Run Geelong will raise funds for Barwon Health’s paediatric rehabilitation services, with 100% of every Run Geelong registration fee going directly to the cause.

Children’s Ward

Ballarat Health Services and the Cotton On Group have worked together for five years, to raise much-needed funds for the Children’s Ward at Ballarat Base Hospital, through the support of Run Ballarat.

Since 2012, the partnership with Run Ballarat has seen over $920,000 donated to the new Children’s Ward, with 100% of every registration fee going directly to the cause.

The Paediatric and Adolescent Unit is the only dedicated unit in the region and manages most medical and many surgical conditions. Its redevelopment will cost $3.5 million, with Run Ballarat committed to funding half of the project.
