Get running to help OzHarvest

Posted by on May 22, 2016

Every day, our yellow OzHarvest vans are running around the country picking up surplus food and delivering it to those in need.

But there are other runners who are just as important to what we do!

If you’re a runner, jogger or walker you can help OzHarvest reduce food waste and provide nutritious meals to Australians in need by doing what you love – organise a team, start fundraising and get your runners on!

Here’s a list of fun runs, running festivals, marathons and half-marathons taking place this year around Australia that give you the chance to have fun and make a real difference.
