Running 655km
for takayna rainforest

In late November 2021, two amateur trail runners -  Giles & Matt - will begin a 650+ km traverse of the Australian wilderness.


Passing through three different states, our route, infamously known as the Australian Alps Walking Track (AAWT), will take us through pristine nature and is set to challenge us beyond measure.


With a camera and support crew, we will be documenting our journey:

1. To raise awareness of the beauty of Australia's wilderness and the need to protect it, and to inspire a greater care for our planet.

2. To raise funds for The Bob Brown Foundation, a non-profit critically fighting to preserve takayna / the Tarkine - a Tasmanian rainforest of exceptional beauty and conservational value which is in extreme danger of total destruction through logging and mining.
