MyMarathon

The fundraising race where you set the pace. Run, jog or walk MyMarathon at your own pace during October.

The Heart Foundation’s MyMarathon is a month-long fitness and fundraising challenge that supports you to complete a marathon while helping to raise funds for lifesaving heart research.  

This October, walk or run 42.2 km either on your own or as part of a team with your friends or colleagues.  

Whether you run it in a day, pound it out in a week or walk it in a month-long commitment to better health, MyMarathon is the fundraising race where you set the pace.  

What’s more, you can do MyMarathon anywhere, from your backyard, to your local park, or your nearest city block.   

When you sign up to MyMarathon, you’ll be joining a passionate community of fundraisers working together to end the heartache caused by heart disease.
