Angela Taylor Memorial Walk/Run


Event Background

The Angela Taylor Memorial Run/Walk was started in 1989. This is community event that welcomes individual runners or walkers, juniors, nippers, veterans and seniors. There’s a category to match all levels of fitness.

At 1.00pm on Thursday the 27 March 1986, a car bomb exploded outside the police complex in Russell Street Melbourne. As a result, young Constable Angela Rose Taylor took the full force of the explosion and later died in hospital. Angela Rose Taylor is, and will remain a symbol of all that is good in the police. Angela was committed to helping others in the community, our police and emergency services continue to demonstrate those values. The Angela Taylor Memorial Run/Walk continues to be held in her honour.
