Tackling the ultra-marathon challenge will be the Rogue Runners, who aim to raise $20,000 for the Australian Childhood Foundation.

Co-founder Jason Nelson said work done by the ACF resonated strongly with the group, which counts former police officers among its members.

�We felt that this type of organisation could do with the greater exposure that our running for them could provide,� he said.

�We really want to help give a voice to children battling trauma, and be relentless in 2015-16 in advocating for their needs.�

After forming in 2011, the not-for-profit group has helped raise $52,000 for a number of organisations.

Just last year more than $22,000 was raised for the Batten Disease Support and Research Association.

The event is being staged at Cockburn Gateway on September 5.
