The "Lest We Forget Run" will be held simultaneously all over Australia, in capital cities, regional centres and country towns as a platform to celebrate and remember the ANZAC spirit. All participating events will start, at an agreed time, with a one-minute silence to be observed by all competitors and officials. The "Lest We Forget Run" will be a 5-mile / 8 kilometre event; in recognition of the distance our ANZAC heroes were required to conquer upon landing at Gallipoli. The event is targeted at family involvement and participation, offering an event that optimises Australians' involvement in healthy and enjoyable physical recreation.
