The 23-year-old smashed his goal to raise $1 million for the homeless and was greeted by thousands as his famous bleached blonde mullet rolled down Bondi Road to finish his 46 day run across Australia.

Brockmann departed Cottesloe Beach in Perth on September 1, and has since averaged more than 80 kilometres per day since.
He runs approximately 10 hours each day, commencing at around 5am. Over the course of his 46-day journey, he will have jogged the equivalent of more than 270 City2Surf races.
Brockmann has been accompanied by his parents, Kylie and Ian Brockmann, girlfriend Jemma Griffin, friend and photographer Bradley Farley, as well as his physio.
“He needs to get off his feet pretty quickly, because they’re pretty mashed by that point,” Kylie told The Sun-Herald on Saturday.
“He’s holding up incredibly well. He’s very thin and I’d rather he was a bit chunkier, but he’s still running. I’m astounded.”
Hundreds are expected to witness the blonde-haired sparkie from western Sydney arrive in Bondi this week.
Brockmann was initially hoping to topple the all-time record, with German ultra marathon runner Achim Heukemes completing the journey across Australia in 43 days in 2005.
But after sustaining an injury around day 12, he needed to cut back on his mileage for recovery.
In 2020, Brockmann achieved the remarkable feat of running 50 marathons in 50 consecutive days, raising more than $100,000 for Australian Red Cross.
