The Power Of Running

The Indigenous Marathon Foundation (IMF) is a health promotion charity that uses running to celebrate Indigenous resilience and achievement, and create inspirational Indigenous leaders.

“Running well is a matter of having the patience to persevere when we are tired and not expecting instant results.”

Robert de Castella

Indigenous Marathon Project

Each year a group of 12 Indigenous Australians are selected to train for the New York City Marathon with just six months of training.

IMF Running and Walking Australia

The IMF RAW Australia (IMF RAW) has grown from the successful IMF RAW Fun Run series and the voluntary work that IMP Graduates are contributing to their communities, to pass forward the positive mental, emotional and physical benefits that IMP experience has provided to them.
