Event update

Due to an overwhelming response, the registrations period for Darkness to Daylight (D2D) has been extended. Participants will have until 5pm 30 April to register for D2D.

All participants that reister up to 30 April will still receive a participant pack in the mail. The packs will be sent to the postal address at the point of registrtion. 

It's dark and it's cold. You are isolated. You are alone. You struggle against the fear that starts in the pit of your stomach and spreads across your chest, down to your feet until it takes over your entire body. Your mind is racing so fast you do not notice you are holding your breathe or your pounding heart. The fear takes over, and the darkness engulfs you. Then a beam of light streams through the darkness. A glimmer of hope, and you feel a little less alone.


On average in Australia 110 people die from DFV every year. Darkness to Daylight (D2D) is a 110km journey with each kilometre representing a life lost to DFV. It is a struggle, it is hard and to get through it we must band together to support each other, much like we do to support an individual going through DFV.

Registrations close April 30.

In Australia on average 110 people die from Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) every year. Darkness to Daylight (D2D) – is a 110km run – where each kilometre represents one of those lives lost. We don’t mind if you run or walk, if you complete 2km or 110km. We just ask that you run with a purpose, that you join us in standing up to domestic and family violence.

When you enter Darkness to Daylight - you are making a stand, helping to drive community awareness and intervention, and raising crucial funds to help prevent DFV. In 2021, we continue to consider participant safety, and with that in mind D2D will combine a digital challenge (100km from 1 May to 30 May) with a shortened live event (10km or 3km) on Monday 31 May.
