18th Annual Bribie Beach Bash
This iconic running event is now in its 18th year. From a gentle 3km stroll or run to a Half Marathon on the Bribie beach 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. This is why a 3% Adminstration Fee has been added to your enty to enable us to forward as much as possible on. Thank you for understanding. It is an affordable day out for the family with plenty of fun.

This event used to start in the rotary Park Woorim, & run north up the beach alongside the 4wd vehicles. Due to the safety of all competitors, I had been asked to relocate the event. I approached the Bribie Island Golf Club who was only to happy to provide their car park for the start/finish, along with their eatery & drink facilities.
We all hope this will be an ongoing agreement.
