Nedd Brockmann is a 24 year old sparky from Central West NSW who, at 23 years old, became the fastest ever Australian to run across Australia, and second fastest in the world, having completed the run from Perth to Bondi Beach in just over 46 days.

It was an incredible effort averaging over 80km a day for the nearly 4000km run. He em-barked on the run to challenge himself, but also wanted to use the opportunity and the at-tention he was creating to try and also raise money for homeless charity Mobilise and set himself a target of $1 million.

During his run, his daily Instagram updates captured the hearts and minds of Australia, culminating in an iconic moment at the finish line on a Monday afternoon at Bondi Beach where more than 10,000 people welcomed him home in an emotional finish that will be remembered for years.

The support for Nedd came from all walks of life, from truckies driving past him, farmers, kids doing bake stalls, council roadside workers, roadside diner chefs, to celebrities and politicians. He inspired messages of support from people including the Prime Minister, Jimmy Barnes, Hamish Blake, Carrie Bickmore, Pat Cummins, Ash Barty, global UFC champion Israel Adensanya, Hollywood actor Lily James, Hugh van Cuylenburg and 2022 Australian of the Year, Dylan Alcott.

The final total raised for the homeless was $2.5 million, with over $600k raised in the final day, their fundraising total for the previous year was $7,500!  Nedd!s relentless focus on never giving up and keep showing up has inspired the nation. His incredible achievement and the way he did it has resonated with all ages and demo-graphics and is driving people across Australia to take on new challenges.


I just wanted to pass on a huge thank you for organising Nedd for last Saturday, it was an outstanding session … As you would appreciate these players have a lot of “influential people” put in front of them to speak each year but Nedd was next level, his humility and ability to connect a purpose to make change in the world is truly remarkable, let alone what he put his body through to get there.
