Want to run for free?   

Fundraise $500 for The Shepherd Centre and not only will you making an amazing contribution to supporting our programs, you’ll also be eligible to run for free and have the cost of your entry rebated to you – how great is that?*

On average it takes only 7 donations to reach a $500 fundraising target – it’s as easy as a posting on social media or sending a text or email to your friends, family and colleagues to let them know your supporting a great cause.  

As an added incentive, once you raise $50, we’ll send you a Shepherd Centre singlet so you can wear your support whilst you train and during the event.

*when you raise $500 you will be promoted to apply for a ticket rebate, this must be submitted before Sunday 16 September. Refunds will then be processed by The Shepherd Centre following The Sydney Running Festival.
