OnTheGo makes final cut in Australian Startup Awards 2014

OnTheGo Sports is proud to be among the list of finalists in the 2014 Australian Startup Awards, in the flagship Startup Daily Startup of the Year category, and in the highly competitive Product Business of the Year category.


This national awards program, conducted by The Entourage, Australia’s largest entrepreneurial education institute, recognises business excellence and celebrates the achievements of Australia's top entrepreneurs under 40.



OnTheGo Sports ambassador & ultra-marathon athlete Pat Farmer is up to his old tricks again, only this time he’s running with the purpose of peace. The Middle East Peace Run is a 20 day run which will follow the somewhat daring route from Lebanon to Israel, via Jordan and the West Bank.

In support of the landmark May 1st run OnTheGo Sports has joined the cause. This Australian owned company not only shares the humanitarian values that this run represents, it also has the mutual vision that a healthy active lifestyle and sport can promote development and peace.

It has been backed up by one of the nation’s brightest young entrepreneurs who says, "The industry talk is that if you see it on Austender, you're already a week too late".
