In 2022, Nedd ran 4,000km across Australia and raised $2,000,000 for charity.
Nedd Brockmann is the fastest Australian to ever run across Australia, and the second fastest in the world. He completed the run from Perth to Bondi in just over 46 days.
Nedd averaged over 80km a day, for a run that was overall nearly 4,000km long. Though initially embarking on the run to challenge himself, Nedd’s efforts generated more attention than he could have ever imagined. He seized the opportunity and used the run to raise money for the homeless charity, Mobilise.
Throughout the run, Nedd documented his progress via Instagram and subsequently captured the hearts of Australians nationwide. Nedd’s efforts culminated in a dramatic finish at Bondi Beach in front of an audience of more than 10,000 people.
The support for Nedd came from all walks of life, from truckies driving past him, farmers, kids doing bake stalls, council roadside workers, roadside diner chefs, to celebrities and politicians. He inspired messages of support from people including the Prime Minister, Jimmy Barnes, Hamish Blake, Carrie Bickmore, Pat Cummins, Ash Barty, global UFC champion Israel Adensanya, Hollywood actor Lily James, Hugh van Cuylenburg and Australian of the Year Dylan Allcott.
Nedd’s run raised $2.5 million - $600 grand of which was raised on the last day alone. An absolutely remarkable feat.
Nedd’s focus and determination is contagious. His incredible achievements push people nationwide to work to achieve their goals, and to do so with passion, vigour and valour. When it comes to challenge and success, Nedd is one of the best there is.
