If you enjoyed watching Nedd Brockmann run across the country then you’ll love these cross country runs, walks and rides on E-bikes


Were you sitting on the edge of your seat for the whole 4000km Nedd Brockmann was running across Australia? I was. The 23-year-old left Perth on September 1 and arrived in Sydney 47 days later, battered, bruised, and triumphant.

The epic undertaking meant running around 100km each day, an incredible achievement when you consider the toll pounding the earth hour after hour, day after day takes on the human body.

If your stoke was ignited by watching Nedd make his way across the country then you’re in luck, it’s having a bit of a moment. Here are three stories of epic expeditions currently underway.

Erchana Murray-Bartlett has set her sights on running a marathon a day, every day, from Cape York to Melbourne. She is doing this to raise funds for the Wilderness Society to help Australia’s extinction crisis.

Conrad Pattinson of Vamos Bikes is riding 4000km from Perth to Sydney on a solar-powered electric bike! He’s undertaking this extrodinary mission to raise money for the Australian Conservation Foundation, an organisation that advocates for the health of the rivers, forests and landscapes where wildlife and people thrive. Conrad wants to encourage Australians to shake up their routine, morning commute, and lifestyles that rely daily on fossil-fuelled transport.

Along the way he’ll be visiting solar farms, interviewing experts and chatting to everyday Aussies, all from the comfort of his solar-powered electric bike. Conrad began his journey on October 22. Donate and follow along on Instagram.

Special Mention: Mat Grills

Instagram: @mat_grills
Method of travel: Running

On September 22, Mat Grills set out from the most westerly point of Australia (Steep Point) to run across the country to the most easterly point (Cape Byron). Mat set a goal of running 5000km in 50 days, this meant 100km a day. Unfortunately due to that fickle thing, the human body, Mat had to abandon his challenge on day 4 due to a hip injury.

If you read Mat’s Instagram posts around this time you can tell he struggles with the reality that due to something out of his control, a goal he had planned for months is now not going to happen. He wrote an excellent post about failure and how its actually a measure of success because you can’t fail unless you attempt something, and that’s the ultimate accomplishment. You can follow Mat on Instagram to see what he does next.
