About Melbourne 2018 Global 5k

The Global 5k, the 5th Annual Irish Run the World race.

On Saturday September 22nd, the collective chapters of The Ireland Fund Young Leaders from around the world will come together to host one event across 19 cities and 7 different countries.

Starting in Brisbane, Australia, the Young Leaders will run a 5km in their respective city before passing the ‘virtual baton’ off to the next city. The Global 5k will conclude when the last young leader crosses the finish line in San Francisco!

All funds raised in Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane) support the Australian Young Leaders’ chosen charities, which this year are:
Suas, who partner with disadvantaged schools across Ireland to deliver literacy support to 8 to 14 year olds; and
Go Foundation, who offer scholarships to Indigenous Australian students in public schools.
