The course will wind through some of Brisbane City’s most iconic landmarks finish at one of the newest and very Batman themed event spaces in Brisbane, the Maritime Museum. All DC Batman Run finishers will receive a limited edition 80th Anniversary finisher’s medal to commemorate their accomplishment and the celebration of Batman.
“We are excited to bring fans together to celebrate Batman’s 80-year legacy,” said Maryellen Zarakas, senior vice president, franchise management and marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “Batman has shown us that everyone has the inner strength and ability to be a super hero. Although he has the best tech and gadgets, at his core he’s just a man that wants to do good in the world and that’s why his character continues to resonate today.”
“Batman is one of the most iconic Super Heroes of all time, and to be able to create an event that celebrates 80 years of his existence is very exciting for our group,” said Rebecca Harwood, Director, DC Batman Run Series Australia. “Now is the optimal time for sponsors to join us on this journey filled with so many moments of celebration and inspiration.”
