Queen Elizabeth II Memorial 5kmOn Thursday 8th of September 2022, Queen Elizabeth II passed away peacefully at her home in Balmoral.
Run Australia Run is celebrating the life of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, with a Memorial 5km. Queen Elizabeth II served for over 70-years of her 96-years and this Memorial 5km and Medal is our way of thanking her. This 5km is a little bit different to our other runs and walks as you can do the 5km however you like. Whether it is a Run, Walk, Bike, Swim, Scooter - just however you wish to do it. You can even drive the 5km as we want it to be acheivable by everyone. You don’t have to do it in one go, you can do it over several days. You do not have to submit the results either - completely up to you.
The medal took a while for us to do as we wanted to keep it respectful and very simple. The 5km starts on Monday the 19th of September and you have until Sunday 16th of October to complete it. You may wish to do this on Thursday the 22nd of September the day of the National Memorial Service and public holiday in Australia to mark her passing.
Just take some time out and do 5km and give some thought to Queen Elizabeth II when you do your 5km and memories you have of her as she has been Queen for most people living life’s.
Some interesting Numbers:70 The number of years she served, “having just celebrated her Platinum Jubilee”54 The number of Countries in the Commonwealth35 The number of countries that have the Queen’s image on their bank notes96 The age of the Queen on her death.
