Helping our young runners

Helping our young runners


This year we are trying to encourage more young people to give running a try. We want young people to love running too.

You can help us grow the sport of running by sponsoring a young local person to take part in the Kanku-Breakaways event.

Just $5 – more if you like – will cover a junior entry for kids U18 from Coober Pedy and outback Australian areas. We hope this removes the barrier of an entry fee and lets them run like the wind in our event.

Any money raised that exceeds the entry costs will be used to purchase running equipment for young runners.

You can make your donation on the registration page - you don’t even have to enter the race yourself.

We have a great event in a very special place. Let’s get more young people out there to enjoy it.
