Achillies Running Club

Our first opportunity to unite as a nation to take on the Achilles Cup!

Alex from Newcastle and Claudia from Melbourne have stepped forward as our team captains and will be assisting with rallying our forces, whether you're a walker, runner or roller, and keeping us on track.

The Achilles Cup is a virtual event organised by Achilles International, NY (head office). For the first time ever, they have invited chapters from all over the world to participate in a single event. 

From October 24 until November 16 all Australian chapters will rally together as a single team to log the distances we cover and be in the running for some prizes!

* Most miles run / wheeled

* Largest team (I reckon we’re in to win that section...)

* Most miles run / wheeled on average

* Most funds raised

* Most funds raised on average

There is a cost for guides of $30 USD but blind / VI athletes are free (you can make a donation in lieu should you desire).

For those guides who may be experiencing financial hardship we have a discount code: achillesVIP100. This gives you a free entry.

If $30 USD is too much but you could afford $20 USD you can use the code AchillesSupporter20.

If you need assistance signing up please contact Claudia by email at or Alex at  or join the Facebook event and meet other participants from Australia here:
