The 2018 Gallipoli Run is both a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by our service men and women in World War 1 and a celebration of the end of the war. Australian men and women created legends that will live on the memory of others for generations around the world.
Seize this opportunity to honour the service and sacrifices of our original ANZACs and generations of service men and women who have followed to defend our values and freedom.
Be part of the 2018 Gallipoli Run on Sunday 22 April, starting from May Drive Parklands Kings Park and play a physical and active role in the commemoration of those service men and women.
Competitors will have the choice of either a 4km or 8km course through the scenic Kings Park running along Lovekin Drive past the memorials for those who died in War.
