They came, they ran, and they nailed it … A world record, a gruelling one million metres underfoot and $300,000 raised to enable significant improvements in the management of melanoma patients at RBWH.

If fact, the team smashed the world record by more than 11 hours completing the mammoth run in 71 hours 41 min and 11 sec.
