Our Story

More than just a fun run

By taking part in Run Army, each runner will be supporting Legacy and the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
Each step taken will help:

  • Our heroes’ children. Each year Legacy hosts holiday camps and other social activities, allowing them to thrive, despite their adversity and loss.
  • Widow(er)s who have lost their partner. Legacy provides day trips to relieve isolation and support at home to make life easier and assist independent living.
  • Young families. Legacy helps to facilitate financial relief and educational support to reduce further stresses or strains on the household.

Your contribution can ensure veterans’ families remain connected and supported, even during the challenges brought on by COVID-19.


A New Tradition

Run Army will bring together a community of people with the common goal of supporting soldiers of the Australian Army and the families of our fallen and injured veterans.

Conducted annually on the weekend leading up to Anzac Day, Run Army allows the community to follow in the footsteps of generations of diggers, pushing themselves mentally and physically through a 5 km walk/run or 10 km run. Runners and walkers will be not only recognising the ANZAC spirit, but also supporting current soldiers of the Australian Army.

This will be an engaging and symbolic event, as people of all ages and fitness levels run alongside veterans and current members of the Australian Army.
