19th Annual Bribie Beach Bash

This iconic running event is now in its 19th 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/water crossings. 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% Administration Fee has been added to your entry 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.

Past History

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. 

Thank you for your support in raising funds for our Aussie Farmer's Appeal.

I hope you enenoy the venue, the course & the day.

Good luck & thank you
