Legs for Literacy

Raise money for Legs for Literacy

Legs for Literacy was started in 2000 by a small group of local runners and a team of enthusiastic volunteers. They saw a need for a community running event and decided that any funds raised would go to local school literacy programs. The first event included 5 and 10 km distances. Over the years the race grew to include the half marathon distance, and in 2005 the marathon distance was added. Due to amazing support from the running community and business sponsors, the race has continued to grow year after year! This year's virtual run will help different local organisations, schools and literacy initiatives in their achievements and pursuit of a better future as they too adapt to news ways and approaches brought by the realities of virtual education.


To date we have donated $781,500 to local schools and literacy initiatives.
