The history behind ‘Run For The Young’ started all because Beck Mitchell wanted to run her first marathon. In the first year, it was her and 98 other runners – and since then it has grown into a international running event, attracting international runners and ultra-marathon runners!
Beck Mitchell is an inspiring leader helping to change the lives of young people – and in February 2020 she became the 5th female to represent Australia in the World Marathon Challenge, running 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days!!
Beck is our home grown hero and she continues to pour out her passionate for running and helping others every year at RFTY.
