Indigenous Marathon Project 2020!

22nd Sep 2020
The Indigenous Marathon Project (IMP) was established in 2009 by world marathon champion, Rob de Castella, and in 2010 four Indigenous Australians created history as the first to run in the world’s biggest marathon – the New York City Marathon.

The IMP has grown significantly with 86 graduates finishing a major international marathon, including New York, Boston, Tokyo, London, Paris and Berlin, and completing an education component with a Certificate IV in Sport and Recreation delivered by AFL Sports Ready.

Caama’s Josef Jakamarra Egger spoke with Samara Fernandez-Brown, this years IMP recipient and Mentor Shane Cook about the 30km Marathon that was held on Sunday and the significance of the project for First Nations people.
