We also support a large team of runners who’ve secured their own place in a variety of running challenges across Australia and choose to run for us.

If you are interested in or already have a place in another event that you would like to do as a charity run for UNICEF Australia, then simply join our fundraising hub to start your fundraising.

Regardless of what race you run, we'll send you a Team UNICEF running vest once you've raised $100.

If you’d like more information about any of these events, please send an email to and a member of our team will get back to you.

Thank you
