Shoe drive to help spread the love of running

Do you, like many Australians, have dozens of used an unwanted running shoes lying around at home that you have no idea what to with?

If so, IMP has solved the problem for you!

As part of our goal to make a difference to Indigenous Australia, and spread the joy of running, we have teamed up with Shoes for Planet Earth to get running shoes to Indigenous communities in need, so that everyone has the chance to own a pair of running shoes.

All you need to do is take your shoes to one of the official drop off points listed below, and we will ensure that they get to an Indigenous community that needs them.

Just make sure the shoes are clean, in a matching pair, have no holes, and are in a box or marked labelled Indigenous Marathon Project.

We are working on having more drop off points, but for the time being if you have shoes that you want to donate and can’t get to one of the locations below, please email us at and we will find somewhere for you to drop your shoes.

For updates and photos of where your shoes end up, make sure you ‘like’ us on Facebook –!/TheMarathonProject.
