MEET YOUR MEDAL WARRIOR

This proud Torres Strait Island man was IMP’s first male athlete from Thursday Island.

Harold Matthew is a husband, proud father of two young daughters, and a 2014 IMP Graduate. Since completing the New York City Marathon in 2014, Harold also completed the Gold Coast and Honolulu Marathons in 2015 and in 2017 he became the first Indigenous Australian to finish the London Marathon.
Harold has made a significant impact on Thursday Island, establishing the Thursday Island Deadly Runners group with fellow 2014 IMP Graduate and Thursday Island local, Elsie Seriat. TI Deadly Runners has started a running revolution on the island and in 2015 the first ever running festival was held on TI – the TI Running Festival (TIRF) – which attracted approximately 200 locals.

Prior to Harold and Elsie’s involvement with IMP, no-one on TI ran; football was the sport of choice. Now, it’s a running island with many locals inspired to participate in races of all distances from 5km right through to marathons.

We are proud to announce Harold as the WARRIOR to feature on this year’s medal.
