Running to America
Running to America 
In March 2009, filmmaker Matt Long approached Robert de Castella with an idea to take a group of Indigenous runners, from the remote outback of Australia and transport them to one of the biggest cities in the world where, along with over 40,000 other competitors they would run the New York Marathon. Running to America is an inspiring account of four young men who took on the New York Marathon in 2010 and won. The subjects of the documentary, Juan Darwin, Joseph Davies, Caleb Hart and Charlie Maher, affirm that it is worth chasing your dream. Running to America also broadens the audience's perspective of the issues facing Indigenous Australians.

The study guide to accompany Running to America, a documentary by Goodoil Films and Cordell Jigsaw, has been written for secondary students. It provides information and suggestions for learning activities in English, Health, Health and Human Development, SOSE, Media, Physical Education and Sport and Recreation.

The Australian Curriculum acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures as a cross curriculum priority in all learning areas. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander priority provides opportunities for all learners to deepen their knowledge of Australia by engaging with the world's oldest continuous living cultures. This knowledge and understanding will enrich students' ability to participate positively in the ongoing development of Australia.
