“The finish line is just
the start line.”

Robert de Castella AO MBE Founder/Director – IMF

The IMF WARRIOR Run was established by the Indigenous Marathon Foundation in 2015 to celebrate and elevate positive male leaders and recognise their role in community. Each year, we select an exceptional male role model as the ‘face’ of the WARRIOR Run medal. These men are selected based on their significant contributions they make to their community. This year, we are proud to celebrate the achievements of Wiradjuri man and Dubbo local, IMP Graduate Nathan Riley.

Organised by Nathan Riley, the Dubbo WARRIOR Run event kicks off Dubbo’s annual NAIDOC Week events and celebrates men in community who are giving it their best.

When: 10am Sunday, September 19, 2021

Where: Ollie Robins Oval, Dubbo (behind Riverdale Shopping Centre)

Events: Kids Dash Colour Run, 5km, 10km.

Come down and celebrate the oldest living culture in the world by simply putting one foot in front of the other.

Registrations are free and all participants will receive a medal. Join us for a smoking ceremony, Aboriginal dance, stalls and an Elders tent, and come and say hello to our special guest, world marathon champion and founder of the IMF Rob de Castella.

For more information, contact Nathan Riley at nathanriley.94@outlook.com.
