Footprints follows the 2017 Indigenous Marathon Project over the course of 6 months as they prepare for the New York City Marathon. Established by Australian world champion marathon runner, Rob de Castella, in 2010, the Indigenous Marathon Project selects 12 young indigenous men and women and provides these future leaders with training and qualifications in health and fitness while pushing their physical and mental boundaries to the limit to achieve a sense of purpose and pride, and enabling them to lead, inspire and encourage change within indigenous communities.
