It is with great pleasure that Athletics WA announces The Perth Mint Gallipoli Run 2017 will be conducted in Kings Park on Sunday 23 April 2017. The Perth Mint has stepped into the breach as the new sponsor of the Gallipoli Runs in Kalgoorlie and Perth in support of WA RSL and Legacy. The Perth Mint's genesis in 1899 was the discovery of gold in Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie and today it still has strong links to Goldfields communities.
The Perth Mint Gallipoli Run series is conducted in Perth and Kalgoorlie to foster the great ANZAC cause around WA. All three events are conducted around Anzac Day commemorations. RSL WA started as the Soldier’s Institute Committee by Mrs Edith Cowan offering service men meals and a place to meet, read and write. Today the RSL WA has 7883 service members and 2152 affiliate members. RSL WA along with WA Legacy are the primary beneficiaries of the The Perth Mint Gallipoli Run Series.
Families are most welcome as this enhances and fosters the ongoing memory of the men and women who fought and died for the freedom we now enjoy. This, combined with the support provided to Legacy for the families of our Service men and women, makes our event a special and memorable occasion for all.
This year’s course is approximately 4 and 8 kms which is significant to the Gallipoli campaign.
To mark this worthy occasion and cause all entrants will be eligible to go into the draw to win one of 10 commemoration coin sets forged by The Perth Mint. To view the Terms & Conditions please CLICK HERE.
