The squad has landed!

The squad has landed safe and sound in the city that never sleeps!! We are now just days away from the big race and we will be bringing you all the action!

IMF Ambassador, Dave Robertson, and Communication and Fundraising Manager, Kellie O’Sullivan, will be commentating on the race and bringing you regular updates.

We will be setting up camp at Sweet Bean Cafe at Lambton (NSW) – so for any Newcastle supporters, please feel free to join us in your PJs for an all-night marathon session (literally!)!

A link will be available shortly for everyone to follow the action.


First off the blocks is IMF ambassador and marathon legend, Kurt Fearnley, who starts at 12:30am AEDT Monday morning, and the first wave of IMP runners will head off at 1:50am AEDT.

We will be bringing regular 5km splits of all runners and supporters and providing some running commentary along the way so we hope you all settle in and enjoy!
