2016 National Deadly Fun Run Championships

The fifth annual National Deadly Fun Run Championships is being held on Saturday 16 July and will coincide with a relay run around Uluru!

The NDFRC will see more than 100 Indigenous runners of all ages and abilities, from 17 Indigenous communities across the country, represent their community in the heart of Australia – right near Uluru.

This year will see the largest Indigenous representation in the event’s history, since its beginnings in 2012.

Deadly Running Groups are heavily run, organised and initiated by IMP Graduates who continue to use running to drive social change, and celebrate Indigenous resilience and achievement in their communities.

The Championships will be held on Saturday morning, with the significant relay run around Uluru happening in the afternoon. IMF was invited back by the Elders and Traditional Owners of the Mutitjulu Community to hold the event again after its success in 2015.

We are excited to be sharing the event with Indigenous runners and IMF supporters. Click below for profiles on runners from each of the representing communities (with a few more to come!):
