Bringing New York to Newcastle

What do you get when you put two Communication Managers in one room?

A marathon conversation!

Join Newcastle running legend and parkrun Communication Manager, Dave “Robbo” Robertson and IMP Communication and Fundraising Manager, Kellie O’Sullivan, as they bring you all the New York City Marathon action!

Follow IMP ambassador and local wheelchair champion, Kurt Fearnley as he attempts another NY marathon title, and the entire 2014 IMP squad as they take on their first ever marathon!

You’ll also have the opportunity of watching Running to America, the powerful documentary about the first four IMP runners in their marathon journey.

For those up for a night time running challenge, join Dave and Kell for a run from Pure Performance Darby Street to the Warners Bay store from 9pm.

A screen will be up in the Warners Bay store televising the race and we are encouraging the Newcastle community to get behind Kurt and the IMP squad.

If you can’t make it, never fear – Dave and Kell’s commentary will be streamed through the IMP website so you can keep updated throughout the entire race – including an exclusive interview with Australia’s first Indigenous runner to cross the NY marathon line, IMP’s very own Charlie Maher.

Prizes will be up for grabs to add to the excitement so grab your pillow and sleeping bag, bring your snacks and lollies, wear your pyjamas or your running gear and get down to Pure Performance for a marathon camp out!
