This year Reconciliation WA will be running the annual Run 4 Reconciliation as part of the Perth City to Surf 2017!

What is Run4Rec?  

Run for Reconciliation (Run4Rec) is an event organised by Reconciliation WA to bring cultural recognition and awareness to the annual Perth City to Surf.

We aim to achieve this through:

  • A large Run4Rec team that represents 3.1% of the events running population. A figure that it is representative of Western Australia’s Aboriginal population.
  • Welcome to Country at the beginning of each race component; 
  • Unique highly visible running shirts on team members and support crew;
  • Traditional Noongar cultural activities and entertainment at the start & finish line

Who can run?

Everyone! Join and run/ walk from 4km through to the full marathon.

 

Why is Run 4 Rec Important?

  • Almost all Australians (86 per cent) believe the relationship between our First People and other Australians is important, with only 30 per cent of the general community currently socialising with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
  • Some Australians (44 per cent) want to support reconciliation but most don’t know how (76 per cent). When people participate in reconciliation activities such as Run 4 Rec, their knowledge improves and their relationships and perspectives can change significantly.

Run 4 Rec is a great platform to support reconciliation, increase your cultural awareness/ diversity and help to foster relationships, respect and opportunities between our First people and other Australians.

How to Support?

Join our 'Run4Reconciliation' Team and purchase one of our great shirts to show your support. Shirts will be on sale for $30 ($25 for students) from our office from the week commencing Monday 14th August until Friday August 25th.  

You do not have to be part of our team to get a shirt and get behind the cause. All city to Surf participants welcome!

We have a Welcome BBQ this Friday, 25th of August. It is a great (and last) chance to pick up your Run4Rec t-shirt, have a free sausage sizzle and meet some of the Run4Rec Team at our office (Cnr Mounts Bay Road and Hackett Drive, Crawley WA 6009) from 3pm-5pm.

Feel free to drop in for as much or little time as suits you on your way home from work.
