Gallipoli Run…showing the Anzac spirit

WA4Ever

21 April 2011

The Gallipoli run through Perth’s beautiful Kings Park was held in recognition of the great ANZAC spirit.  The annual event took place on Sunday 17 April and was a fun way to pay tribute to the ANZACS.

This year Bankwest was a proud sponsor of the Gallipoli Run with over 480 people taking part.  Bankwest colleagues also got behind the event with over 80 colleagues enjoying the run and supporting this important event.

The Gallipoli Run recognises the 8km march our ANZAC troops endured once they landed at Gallipoli during World War 1. Our fabulous friends from Emirates Western Force, Justin Turner and Ted Postal provided Bankwest colleagues with some warm up tips before the event and the guys were also available to sign autographs and pose for photos.

It was great to see runners or walkers getting involved in either the 8km run, the 4km run or the 4km walk. Thanks to all for participating and a big congratulations to the winners. Money raised from the Bankwest Gallipoli Run goes to Athletics WA and the RSL.

Congratulations to the winners:
