Erchana Murray-Bartlett Runs 100 Marathons

Australian marathon runner Erchana Murray-Bartlett runs 100 Marathons in a row and is aiming for 150.
Murray-Bartlett, who began her journey on August 20, 2022, in Cape York, Queensland, plans to run to Port Melbourne, Victoria, on January 16, 2023, a marathon a day for 150 days.

She writes “You’re probably wondering why I am undertaking this epic adventure? Well, I’m in love with Australia’s native animals. They’re quirky and unique with fun personalities and I just love sharing all my favourite trails with them. But unfortunately, many of these beautiful creatures are now facing the very real threat of extinction. Did you know that there are now almost 500 Aussie animals on the endangered list, including some of our key iconic animals! Imagine an Australia without a Koala? It’s about as un-Australian as not liking vegemite! We are working in collaboration with the Wilderness Society to help stop the extinction crisis”.
