16th Annual Bribie Beach Bash

This iconic running event is now in its 16th year. From a gentle 3km stroll or run through to the full 50 kms of the Bribie beach run there is an event for every member of the family. As always, the date is chosen to coincide with a very low tide, so that we run on the hard flat sand at the water’s edge. The beach itself is hard sand lightly pebbled in places with a few shallow creek crossings in the longer runs only. So easy, so much fun, so beautiful. So see you all there! Come one come all to this great morning of fun running the beach in Paradise.   

The event is cheap to enter as it is run with proceeds being given to our beneficiary AUSSIE HELPERS DROUGHT APPEAL. It is an affordable day out for the family with plenty of fun.

There are 7 Event lengths

Past History

Steven Hill was a supporter of this event entering in the 15k in 2013. I understand he was a keen athlete conscious of his training. He was actually leading that event till the turn but for unknown reasons went off course. He was later found lying on a vehicle track. He was taken to Caboolture Hospital, later transferred to Redcliffe Hospital where he passed away 3 days later in the company of his friends & family. I understand he was a gentle giant. In respect to his family & appreciation of his support the 15k event carries his name.
