Six Foot Track Marathon Organising Committee
Commencing in 2015 the race has been organised by a Race Committee to cover many key roles. There are between 250 to 300 volunteers supporting the race each year: a ratio of one volunteer to every three runners.
Proceeds given to the NSW Rural Fire Service
Since the start of the Six Foot Track Marathon, back in 1984, all proceeds were given to the NSW Rural Fire Service, not only because it is a volunteer organisation that does a good service for the safety of the community, but because they provide all the logistical help on the day, and the run would just not happen without their assistance.
In recent years, the race has generally managed to raise over $40,000, with 2018 being a record-breaking $73,915.
Upkeep and maintenance of the track
The Six Foot Track Marathon pays an annual fee, determined by NSW Department of Lands, to help with the upkeep and maintenance of the track. This helps to balance the demands the runners make on the environment with the ongoing sustainability of the track. The funds have been used for various projects : installation of decomposing toilets, water tanks, updated styles, signs, notice boards and upkeep of camping grounds.
