A beautiful chat with Andrew ‘Googz’ Thorpe. Gunnai gunditjmara man, heroic runner and mental health advocate, graduate of the fantastic Indigenous Marathon Project!! We talk about running 100ks, the 777 challenge, Indigenous Marathon Program, fundraising, coping with depression and mental ill health, foster children, and much more. Googzy is really someone we can look up to - honest, humble, vulnerable and hard working. Eye opening and essential, chatting with Googzy was an absolute privilege.
Tarkine Running and Run to Paradise are based in Walyalup (Fremantle) the un-ceded traditional lands of the Whadjuk people of the Nyoongar nation. We honour and are thankful for their continued custodianship over the lands we work, sing and run on. Always was, always will be.
