How it Works

Step 1
Follow a refugee journey

For the month of July walk, run, cycle or move any other way to cover a distance matching a journey that many refugees have taken. Choose the journey that suits your fitness level and your preferred activity:

  • If you are taking part as an individual, the 80km Naf River to Cox's Bazaar journey is suggested.
  • Want more of a challenge? Then go for the 145km Damascus to Beirut journey.
  • Joining as a team? The 425km Afghanistan to Pakistan is a great option.
  • Or, if you want to really go the distance, the 1,175km Myanmar to Thailand is for the avid fitness enthusiasts!

The official dates are June 17 - July 30, but you can sign up and begin at any time between those dates. Click on the map below to choose your journey!

If you are unsure, please see frequently asked questions for more information.

Step 2
Collect kilometres

Collect kilometres as you venture on your Red Cross Journey. You can use a fitness app of choice; Fitbit, Map My Fitness, Strava or even an old-school pedometer! You can count anything that keeps you active – even gardening and housework! We'll have a kilometre conversion tool online so that you can count all sorts of activities towards your journey goal.

Step 3
Raise funds to help others

Ask your friends and family to sponsor you for taking on this challenge! If you join as an individual or a team, you’ll be fundraising to help people in crisis. There are some awesome prizes to be won by the best fundraisers, check out the hints and tips page to get you fundraising like a pro! Registration is $10 and you can join as an individual or group.
