 What is Run Army?

Run Army is a fun run promoting resilience, teamwork and endurance.

We invite the community to join us in recognising the ANZAC spirit and push themselves physically and mentally alongside current serving soldiers, and our First Responders from the Queensland Police, Queensland Ambulance and Queensland Fire and Emergency Services.

Run Army participants will run and walk 5 km or 10 km around Brisbane CBD.

How do I create a team? How many people can join a team?

Run Army is an individual event, but you’re more than welcome to enter as a group with friends and family! Group entries are now available on the website. 

Anyone can create a group. Invite friends, colleagues, club members to join you. Any number of people can join your group.

I can no longer attend, can I get a refund?

Due to the charitable donation as part of your registration to the Run Army event, we regret that we are unable to issue refunds.
