Athletics Australia and the Returned & Services League are proud to announce a joint initiative named the "Lest We Forget Run", that will be held annually on the nearest Sunday following ANZAC Day. This event is designed to capture the ANZAC spirit and deliver a contemporary platform through which communities can show their support for the ANZAC tradition, while raising funds for an RSL-nominated charity. 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.
