100 years on from the beginning of World War I the cities of Brisbane and Melbourne played host to Australia’s first ANZAC Run in April this year. The events were a fine way to pay tribute to the Australian and New Zealand servicemen and women who served their country in the line of duty over the last century. 

The Melbourne event featured 5km and 10km distances which took place around the idyllic Royal Botanic Gardens, with an appropriate emphasis on the Shrine of Remembrance included in the course. 

 

Brisbane featured 6km and 12km distances which were run alongside the Brisbane River and took in aspects of the Botanical Gardens. 

 

The event is organised by Tour of Duty, a group committed to recognising the efforts of first responders and those who are active, retired or injured in the line of duty. 

 

The ANZAC Run is the latest in a series of highly regarded international run and bike events organised by Tour of Duty, all of which honour those who past and present have served their country. 

 

ANZAC day takes place on the 25th of April in Australia and New Zealand each year and marks the anniversary of ANZAC forces landing at Gallipoli on 25th April 1915.
