Like the ANZAC tradition itself, the annual Tour of Duty Run in Melbourne prides itself on community, mateship and solidarity, and the spirit of enterprise and freedom for all.
You are invited to join a vibrant, exhilarating and uplifting run that's energetic and fun, and which commemorates the Australian and New Zealand servicemen and women who served the nation and those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
The inaugural Anzac Runs 2014 were held in Melbourne and Brisbane and enjoyed strong support from community, military and government alike. It is envisaged that the 2015 runs will further reinforce the message of mateship, integrity and commitment – as Tour Of Duty broadens its focus to include all first responders along with the military in raising awareness for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Tour of Duty aims to enrich the community’s understanding of PTSD whilst showing appreciation to our first responders and their contribution to our safety in everyday life.
Tour Of Duty participants will be encouraged to either run or walk in this 5km or 10km/12km community based event on raising awareness and financial support for the treatment of PTSD via our charities Mates4Mates and beyondblue. We also enable participants to fundraise for either charity via the Everyday Hero portal on the Tour Of Duty website.
