Marathon Men: Sports Talk with Charlie Maher

Parrtjima | Talks | Marathon Man - In Conversation: Charlie Maher

Hear from Charlie Maher as a part of the talks program at Parrtjima 2023.

Western Arrernte man Charlie Maher Jnr discovered running was a way of dealing with his demons and by the time he crossed the finish line in London in 2022, he had been running marathons for 12 years. That year he made history as the first Indigenous Australian runner to finish the six ‘majors’: New York, Boston, Tokyo, Berlin, Chicago and London.

He is also one of the four members of the inaugural Indigenous Marathon Project team which launched in 2010. It’s much more than running for this local resident, who hopes to inspire others around the nation through his story and journey.

Entry to talks will be on a first-come, first-served basis so make sure you arrive early.
