The Bloody Long Walk is a 35 kilometre challenge owned and operated by the Mito Foundation. Walk, jog or run and enjoy spectacular scenery whilst raising vital funds to help find cures for mitochondrial disease (mito).

Mito is 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 are at risk of developing mito. 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.

Walk the beautiful Fernleigh Track, along Throsby Creek, Lee Wharf and honeysuckle drive, before meandering through the city. Then head up to Merewether taking in stunning views of the Pacific Ocean to join Yuelarbah Track and Newcastle Memorial Walk before finishing next to the white sands of Newcastle Beach.

Enjoy the 35 kilometre challenge at your own pace, be it a walk, jog or run, knowing that every step is one step closer to finding a cure for mito! Fully supported course with checkpoints and refreshments.
