RUN 2018 – SYDNEY

DATE

LOCATION

Garrison Point Garrison Point, Beatty Pde, Georges Hall.

RUN or WALK

The Run is a sporting and family event initiated and organised by Australians for Palestine (AFP), a not-for-profit advocacy group that seeks a just peace and freedom for the Palestinian people. 

Raising awareness about the onerous restrictions on the every day life of Palestinians takes many forms. AFP felt that a run would be a powerful way of helping people realise how lucky they are to have the freedom of movement denied to Palestinians.

T-SHIRT SIZING

Australians for Palestine designed the popular t-shirts used in the annual Run for Palestine held in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Perth and Canberra.

The white t-shirts feature a version of Handala the much-loved iconic faceless refugee child first created by Palestinian artist and cartoonist Naji Al Ali. The logo was designed by artist Dora McPhee for Run for Palestine. The text reads: RUN FOR PALESTINIAN HUMAN RIGHTS.

The t-shirts are unisex and come in two types: normal white cotton and the Dri-FIT t-shirt preferred by runners. Both t-shirts carry the Run for Palestine logo.

Available sizes (cotton):
(measure across the shoulders)
Youth XS = 39cm
Youth M = 44cm
Adult S = 46cm
Adult M = 49cm
Adult L = 53cm
Adult XL = 57cm
Adult 2XL = 62cm
Adult 3XL = 68cm


Available sizes (Dri-Fit): XS, small, medium large.

Your selected t-shirt is included in your pack with numbered bib and timer when you purchase your tickets. The packs will be available for collection on the day of the Run. You can also use your t-shirt from the previous year, so that more funds can go to helping the children.

T-shirts will be available for sale on the day as well.
