Julia Vidic runs 2018 NYC Marathon

By Julia Vidic


On November 4 2018, I will attempt my first (and quite conceivably my last) marathon - running/walking/crawling on my hands and knees for 42.2kms (that's approximately 63,000 steps) through New York City for a fantastic cause - the Roger Rasheed Sports Foundation. The Roger Rasheed Sports Foundation aims to develop better, healthier children and communities by giving vulnerable and disadvantaged children access to diverse sports.  All funds raised will go towards building facilities and providing equipment as well as training programs, pathways and mentoring in sport. 

This really is a great cause, and I hope you might consider supporting me in the biggest mental and physical challenge I will likely ever undertake, all the while knowing that your contribution will go directly towards children in disadvantaged communities in South Australia.

Thank you for considering supporting this terrific cause, and getting me across the finish line!

Good luck Julia I m sure all the training will all pay off! I think Run to Paradise by the Choir Boys at the 35km mark will get you across the line.

I think Bruce Springsteen and Born to Run at the 40km mark to get you pumped up for the finish! Good Luck it is 40km further than I 'm willing to run for anything.
