Run with Rob – donate your miles

Rob’s run across America

A huge challenge, Rob aims to recreate the journey of Forrest Gump, the 1994 American comedy-drama film telling the story of one man who just loved to run.

Rob said, “I guess I just felt like running…”, but he is no beginner in the running world. He won the Liverpool Rock n Roll Marathon in 2015 and became Australia Marathon Champion at the Australian Marathon Championships in 2015.

But this is his biggest challenge yet. It is a huge distance that will take months to finish.

With more than 100 marathons between him and the finish line, Rob would love your support.
