History & Honour Roll

The first Canberra Times Family Fun Run was held in 1976 to commemorate the paper’s 50th anniversary. The original 9.6 km route started at the Trademan’s Club, in Furzer Street, Phillip. Runners turned into Launceston Street ran up to the intersection with Melrose Drive turned north and ran through to Yarra Glen. From then on the route was the same as today’s route. Over the decades some of Australia's best athletes have stood upon the podium.
