Frequently asked questions

If you are hosting the event as a part of your church, it is likely to already have public liability insurance. Please discuss this with your church first before proceeding. World Vision insurance does not extend to third party events, and therefore host sites are required to organise their own.

See if someone else in your church, school or group can help by taking over the planning and running of the event. If for some reason this isn’t possible, people can still do the Global 6K for Water as a virtual participant. This means they will participate but not be involved in an official event, instead doing it in their own time and location. They will still receive a racing bib and medal as long as they have registered as a participant online.

No, once you’ve registered for the race, you’ve helped to provide clean water for people in need! So whether you can complete the event or not, you should feel good about the fact that you’ve helped change lives.

We won’t be collecting times, but of course you can time yourself or compete with your fellow participants using a running app.


Yes! We want families and children of all ages to participate in this event. Up to three children can run for free alongside a registered adult, who can create and share a fundraising page to share with their children. Children must be 15 years old or under and will be provided with a matching race bib and medal.

No, registration fees are not tax deductible. Only donations made to your fundraising page may be tax deductible.

Every $22 registration fee includes GST and will help cover the cost of your race day kit and help provide clean water for people in need through World Vision’s water projects.

We’ll start sending out kits weekly from early May. The kits include a race bib to wear on the day and a medal to wear proudly once you’ve completed your 6K! Delivery by standard post is free and can take 5-10 business days from lodgement, depending on your location.
