When & Where
The Indigenous Marathon Foundation
The Indigenous Marathon Foundation (IMF) is a not-for-profit charity, with DGR status, that was established in 2009 by world champion marathon runner, Robert de Castella and uses running to change lives.
The IMF includes a range of programs including the Indigenous Marathon Project (IMP), Deadly Fun Run Series (DFRS) and Indigenous Communities for Activity and Nutrition (I CAN).
Now in its seventh year, the IMF, through the IMP program, has trained and mentored 54 Indigenous Australians across the finish line of major international marathons including New York, Tokyo, and Boston.
After they cross the finish line, our runners become Graduates and continue to work with IMF as drivers of change for their families, communities and Australia.
The IMF is committed to using running as a vehicle to promote health, drive social change and celebrate incredible Indigenous resilience and achievement.
A documentary Running to America was produced in the inaugural year by GoodOil Productions and tells the story of four young Indigenous men from NT and WA and the problems and battles they faced as they trained to be the first Indigenous runners to run the New York Marathon. A truly inspirational documentary.
Rob is also Founder and Director of a not-for-profit program that measures and reports on the health and fitness characteristics of primary school children.
Donations can be made to IMF and SmartStart for Kids at
