Puma has signed on to support Nedd Brockman, the sparky from Forbes, in his world record attempt for the fastest ever run across Australia.

The move follows a series of localised campaigns for the global sportswear giant, including a collaboration with Modibodi and Perth streetwear brand Butter Goods.

In 2020, Brockmann ran 50 marathons in 50 days while still working, to raise money and awareness for the homeless.

This year, Brockman wants to take things to a whole new level.

Puma ambassador Rohan Browning announced the partnership, presenting Brockmann with new Puma apparel and shoes aimed to help him across his next four months of training and then during the run which starts on September 1.

“We are so excited to welcome Nedd to the Puma family and support him in his incredible challenge running across Australia,” Puma Oceania GM Pancho Gutstein said.

“His energy and positive attitude and commitment to spark change through running match perfectly with our brand values and we look forward to working together.”

“It is hard to fathom what he’s setting out to accomplish in running across Australia, but Puma will be with him all the way.”

Nedd is attempting to break the world record for the fastest ever run across Australia which currently sits at 43 days according to website Fastest Known Time, and 67 days according to the Guinness World Records.

He will be also continuing his push to support the homeless, setting a goal of raising $1 million for Homeless charity Mobilise.

Kicking off in Perth on September 1 and finishing at Bondi Beach, Nedd will aim to run just under 100Km a day for around 40 days, the equivalent to more than two marathons a day.
