Event Update

Our priority is the health and wellbeing of our communities and we urge everyone to follow the health advice currently available to stay safe and well.  

At the direction of Australian Health Authorities, we can now confirm the postponement of Darkness to Daylight 2020 due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns. 

Darkness to Daylight will now take place on October 21st –22nd at the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens. All purchased registrations for the May event will be honoured for the rescheduled October dates. Registrations will remain open during this time to allow participants to continue with their fundraising journeys.  

A sincere thank you for the continued support for Darkness to Daylight and Australia’s CEO Challenge. We look forward to seeing you in October to come together to show that the community cares, that we can make an impact that matters 

If you have any concerns or queries, please contact the team - eventcrew@aceoc.org. 

About Darkness to Daylight

Darkness to Daylight is a symbolic 110km run with each kilometre representing the lives lost on average to domestic and family violence (DFV) each year across Australia. Participants can run the 110km individually or as part of a team. Alternatively, they can run or walk the final 10km or 3km. Australia’s CEO Challenge (ACEOC) aims to bring DFV out of the darkness and into the daylight through this community event.

In 2019, we saw a record 2,730 participants take part in the challenge and raise over $140,000!

We are extremely overwhelmed by the generous support and commitment to the 2019 Darkness to Daylight Challenge!

We hope to see many more people taking on the challenge in 2020! For more information about the 2020 event, please visit darknesstodaylight.org.
