The IMP has grown significantly with 132 graduates finishing a major international marathon, including New York, Boston, Tokyo, London, Paris and Berlin, and completing a compulsory education in health and leadership.
The Indigenous Marathon Project (IMP) was established in 2009 by world marathon champion, Rob de Castella, and in 2010 four Indigenous Australians created history as the first to run in the world’s biggest marathon – the New York City Marathon.
The continual growth and expansion of the IMP led to the establishment of the IMF in 2015 which covers four core programs:
- The Indigenous Marathon Project (IMP)
- Indigenous Communities for Activity and Nutrition (I-CAN)
- FrontRunners (a Graduate specific program)
- IMF Running and Walking Australia (IMF RAW)
Running and physical activity underpin all IMF programs and we are committed to providing social, inclusive, and fun environments for people to adopt active and healthy lifestyles.
