In 2018 Run for Resilience completed our first event; a gruelling 22 day, 1500km journey on foot, running from Brisbane to Winton in Central West QLD, the reverse route of a 1915 troop train route journey to tell;
"A veteran’s story of finding resilience on the journey home from war".
My name is Wayne McMurtrie and I am an Australian Army Veteran and Ultra Runner.
I ran to share my lived experiences with other Contemporary Veterans and First Responders their families and communities.
I helped to raise much needed awareness and funds that supported Veterans, First Responders and their Families to overcome trauma related to their service through programs delivered by the Veterans Charity PTSD Resurrected Inc.
I continue to use endurance running to tell the ongoing story of Contemporary Veterans, of how they continue to re-define their own sense of self-worth and identity on a journey to re-discover their passion and purpose in today’s modern society.
