13th Annual Bribie Beach Bash

This iconic running event is now in its 13th 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 at a small profit with proceeds being given to our beneficiary Multiple Sclerosis Qld. It is an affordable day out for the family with a BBQ to follow.

There are 7 Event lengths

50km, Marathon. Half Marathon, 15km, 10km, 6km, 3km

Family discount of 10% is available for families of 2 adults and up to 4 children living at the same address.

Race-walkers and runners welcome in all events. Teams are also welcome. (note casual walkers not accepted in 50km and Marathon distances).
