Australian Virtual Running Experience

If you’re looking for an opportunity to help support the Heart Foundation, we have just the thing for you!

Coronary heart disease accounts for approximately 1 in 10 Australian deaths. * That means thousands of families know the heartache of losing a family member to the condition all too well – and many more feel the emotional toll of supporting loved ones with poor heart health.  

If you’re looking for an opportunity to help end the heartache caused by heart disease and support the Heart Foundation in continuing to fund lifesaving heart disease research, then we have just the thing for you! 

We’ve partnered with the Australian Virtual Running Experience, an all-new virtual event from our friends at realbuzz!  

Enter Now  

You can choose from the Lucky Country 10k, Land Down Under Half Marathon, Terra Australis Marathon, or the Madjedbebe 100 Mile Challenge. There’s a challenge to suit everyone, and there are loads of great benefits: 

 Amazing race medals 

 High quality technical t-shirts 

One-to-one online training support 

Discover Australia with unique virtual courses around the country 

You can take on the challenge when and where it best suits you, and it’s a great way to fundraise while staying motivated on your fitness journey.  

Sign up here today, and tick the Heart Foundation in the ‘Do it for charity’
