Mon-Sun 6-12 Apr ANZAC ULTRA 2015
The ultra running community will show their respect and honour the lives of our defence service men and women by making the 435km journey on the Canberra Centenary Trail from 6 to 12 April 2015. This will be the one and only time this event will take place. The legend of ANZAC was born on 25 April 1915, and was reaffirmed in eight months' fighting on Gallipoli. The Australians displayed great courage, endurance, initiative, discipline, and mateship. Such qualities came to be seen as the ANZAC spirit. The newly federated nation had looked to its rural environment for its national character. The 'bushmen', and their women, were seen to possess hardiness, democratic spirit, mateship, and resourcefulness. The Ultra aims to raise over than $50,000 for Legacy. This will be done by online fundraising by the race and individual competitors. Once all bills are paid any money left over will be donated to Legacy. Legacy is a charity providing services to Australian families suffering financially and socially after the incapacitation or death of a spouse or parent, during or after their defence force service. Legacy currently cares for 100,000 widows and 1,900 children and disabled dependants throughout Australia. The ANZAC Ultra 2015 will be run as a continuous multi-day ultramarathon. Runners will be required to run /walk as they please over the route within the specified time limit. Each runner will provide their own crew to provide supplies, safety and support. The race will start from Stromlo Forest Park with 50 runners in the 435km option and then as it progresses more runners will join with either a 290km or 145km option culminating on the second last day with up to 320 runners helping remember the ANZAC Centenary.  contact: Phil Essam. email: anzacultra@gmail.com. Visit the website for more details.
