Start your Australia Day bright and early with OZ RUN!
Australia Day is a day for all Australians no matter where our personal stories begin. It’s a day to reflect on what it means to be Australian, to celebrate contemporary Australia and to acknowledge our history.

Held in the morning of Australia Day 26 January at the Darwin Waterfront, OZ RUN is the Territory’s largest FREE running event. 104one will be live from the Waterfront after 6am. We encourage everyone to celebrate our national day by dressing up and embracing the spirit of Australia in a COVID safe manner. Please note, we will not be accepting any entries on the day. All entries and gold coin donations MUST be received online prior to the event. This is a free event, however we do ask that you make a gold coin donation whilst registering to support the small not for profit organizations that help make this event happen.

Can I bring my pram?

Absolutely! We encourage all members of your families to participate. To make it easier for you all to stay together, please move to the back of the starting area so that younger kids don’t get caught up in the mad initial rush.

If it’s free, why do I need to register online and register everyone in my group? Good question!

While we take every safety precaution, sometimes accidents do happen. If you are registered, then you are covered by insurance. If not, unfortunately you should not be participating. Registering also assists in contact tracing, should the need arise.

Is there water on the run course?

Yes! there will be two water stations on the OZ Run course. One near the 2.5km runners and two for the 5km runners. It is advised that you bring your own water bottle though as it’s very hot.

Can I register on the day?

To ensure COVID safety, unfortunately we are unable to accept registrations on the day. Please register online before the event via the link below.

Can I bring my pets?

Due to the number of people that participate in this event, we are unable to allow your fur-baby to participate. It’s just too dangerous for them and we would hate to see them injured.

Are bikes & scooters ok?

While it is so much fun trying to speed in front of and through groups of people, those super speedy skills are better put to use on a bike track, and we can’t have them as part of OZ Run!
