Get your friends involved!

Invite your friends, family, school friends, work colleagues or sporting club and sign up as a team! Although you may not be able to run together, taking part brings our community closer together and promotes resilience, health and wellbeing. Signing up as a team is a great way to challenge yourself and keep yourself motivated!

Download your bib

Participants will receive a downloadable bib which can be printed off and worn when completing your run. It is not compulsory to wear your bib, but we encourage running with it to feel part of the Run Army community. It is also a great way to acknowledge the sacrifices made by our soldiers in the lead up to ANZAC Day.

What if I’m in the Army?

A number of Army bases have chosen to take part in the virtual run together. Have a look to see if your barracks or unit is signed up. If they are, you can join their group and receive information from local organisers (please note that Brisbane is the only Run Army planned event open to public participation). If you can’t find them or want to host a virtual event on behalf of your unit or barracks contact [email protected].
