What is

The Heart Foundation’s MyMarathon is a fitness and fundraising challenge that drives you to run, jog, or walk 42.2 kilometres at your own pace during October, while helping to raise vital funds for lifesaving heart disease research.

You can do it on your own, or as part of a team with 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 the beach to running laps of a city block. 

And we’ll be there to encourage you every step of the way– while you do your personal best for the people you care about. 

Sign up for MyMarathon today, or sponsor somebody who has,
and help us strive to win the race against heart disease.
