Race Information

The Bloody Long Walk in Canberra is a 35km challenge owned and operated by the Mito Foundation. The Mito Foundation supports people affected by mitochondrial disease (mito), funds essential research into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cures of mitochondrial disorders, and increases awareness and education about this devastating disease.

Walk, jog or run and enjoy spectacular scenery while raising vital funds to help find cures for mitochondrial disease, a debilitating and potentially fatal genetic disorder that impairs the body's ability to convert food into the energy needed to power muscles and major organs. One in 200 people is at risk of developing mito and one Australian child born each week suffers a severe or life-threatening form of mito, making it the second most commonly diagnosed serious genetic disease after cystic fibrosis.
