More than 700 people will pound the pavement in the fourth annual Mateship Run on the Gold Coast on Saturday, 10 November 2018.

The Mateship Run is an opportunity to come together and recognise the extraordinary contribution our armed services make – past and current – through participating in a healthy fun run or walk, while also helping Young Veteran Support Services raise awareness and funds.

Held along the Currumbin foreshore, the event will see community participants and returned servicemen and women unite to raise funds for young local veterans. The fun run and walk is an opportunity to come together and recognise the extraordinary contribution our armed services make – past and current.

The Mateship Run has become an iconic part of remembrance celebrations for the Gold Coast and provides an opportunity for all ages and fitness levels to run, walk or push distances including a 10-kilometre run, 5-kilometre walk or run, 1.5-kilometre Currumbin RSL Community Walk or 1.5-kilometre Junior Bolt.

Invictus Games gold medallist and Gold Coast local, Dean Knobel, will be the official race starter on the day.

The Young Veterans Support Services (YVSS) organisation provides younger veterans with access to a range of services and activities that help with the challenges of transitioning to civilian life. This includes programs that offer social, education and employment opportunities, and improved physical and psychological health and wellbeing.

Participants of all ages, sizes and fitness levels are encouraged to enter in the walk or run with friends, family and work colleagues as we celebrate the camaraderie and mateship of our heroes.
