On May 2018, Wandering Warriors staged a commemorative event – a stretcher carry challenge – along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. This off-road challenge took between 5.45 and 8 hours to complete and began and ended in the township of Fernvale, about 50 minutes drive from the Brisbane CBD. The stretcher carry is the ultimate team event, as the task demands teamwork to be completed quickly and efficiently. Add 50 kilograms of weight and fast-walk or jog with the stretcher over a 42-kilometre course and you will know you’ve done a good day’s work!
The branding started for the event with the Tribute logo. It needed to reflect the era in which the event was honouring. Poppy’s and barbed wire to reflect the era and honour remembrance traditions. Once the logo was developed everything else fell into place. Items designed for participants consisted of sublimated shirts, embroidered caps, custom designed and made medallions, certificates, signage and all social media posts.
