Even if you haven’t applied online, you can STILL attend a try-out at a location near you, and complete an application form on the day of your trial.

Try-out process

Trials include a 5km run for the men and 3km for the women, followed by an interview with the head coach.

IMP is not looking for the fastest runner. We are searching for inspirational Indigenous Australians who possess a strong purpose, determination, and commitment to changing their life and the lives of their communities.

We encourage all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island men and women aged 18-30 to apply. No running experience is necessary!
