Sub4 is excited to welcome Ambassador Marc Simpkins. Marc is about to embark on an epic journey from Wollongong to Perth, running all the way!
Simpkins, a third-year student in RMIT’s Bachelor of Education (Primary), will ‘chase the sun’ from Wollongong to Perth over three months, raising money for the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation and The Alannah & Madeline Foundation in the process.
With no support crew, Simpkins will be pushing all of his supplies – including camping gear, food and water – in a custom 95kg buggy. Simpkins will run more than a marathon per day to reach the 3910km total in fewer than 90 days, camping on the roadside and restocking supplies at rural towns along the way.
Good luck Marc, we can’t wait to follow your progress.
