Nedd Brockmann isn’t afraid to dream big. Fresh after running fifty marathons in fifty days, the twenty-three-year-old had an idea: a 4000-kilometre run across Australia, averaging 100 kilometres per day with the aim of completing it in the fastest known time of 43 days. He wasn’t chasing fame or public recognition. He just wanted to test his limits and raise a million dollars for homelessness in the process.

Most said he was crazy, others claimed it couldn’t be done. But those who know Nedd knew never to doubt him. They understood that this is someone who will do whatever it takes to finish what he started, and that when he commits his mind to something, he always gets it done.

Understanding the mindset of someone predisposed to such feats of voluntary suffering has been nearly impossible – until now. With his trademark humour and unfiltered style, Nedd recalls the lessons learned on sporting fields that cultivated discipline, the setbacks that tested his resolve, and the relationships that proved most important of all: those who instilled the importance of hard work, of never giving up, and to always give back generously.

About the Author

Nedd Brockmann is a 24-year-old sparky from Central West NSW who, at 23, became the fastest ever Australian to run across Australia. It was an incredible effort averaging over 80 kms a day for the nearly 4,000 km run. He embarked on the run to challenge himself, but also wanted to use the opportunity to raise money for homeless charity Mobilise. During his run, his daily Instagram updates captured the hearts and minds of Australia, culminating in an iconic moment at the finish line on Bondi Beach where more than 10,000 people welcomed him home in an emotional finish that will be remembered for years. Nedd’s relentless focus on never giving up by just showing up has inspired thousands across the nation to take on new challenges, big and small!
Industry Reviews
‘Nedd is an absolute legend with a heart of gold. His run was spectacular and all the money he raised for the homeless was incredible. What a champion.’
