Running A2ZACT With Brent Ford

With the A2ZACT Canberra’s Brent Ford has set himself a challenge for 2021, to run in each suburb of the ACT, in alphabetical order.

I haven’t met Brent before but I started following him on Twitter after he posted about walking from Gungahlin to Tuggeranong or something similar. I was thinking I do ridiculous things like that, we might get along. He’s done a huge amount of running and other exercise this year and is a bit of inspiration for many around. He’s also raised a bunch of money in the process too.

 

He is planning on running multiple suburbs per day for the A2ZACT project, so it shouldn’t be too long until the whole list is complete. Not sure if this has been done before, particularly not with running and also not in alphabetical order. I’d like to create a bit of a resource with recommendations around each suburb. There has been a project to visit all suburbs of Canberra, with these cool photographical essays.

I will put a link to each suburb once they are complete.
