What a fantastic opportunity to bring friends and family together for a day of fun – with the added benefits of fresh air and exercise – following one of the most picturesque courses in the country on the Jetty2Jetty 2018 fun run.

You’ve got glorious coastal views all the way. What’s more, the course is pretty much level. What more could you possibly want?

Jetty2Jetty is an amazing community event in its 32nd year.

It was launched in 1986 by the Moreton Bay Road Runners to raise money for an organisation close to their hearts, Redcliffe Athletics Club.

The event has blossomed into a four-pronged running festival with dedicated sponsors.  Entrants are able to run like the wind for their own sense of wellbeing or nominate a charity of their choice to feel even better about their wellbeing!

More than 4000 competitors are expected to sign up across the four events.

It’s a huge day, starting at 6.45am with the half marathon (some people are a little bit crazy and very fit).

One of the things we love about Jetty2Jetty is its inclusiveness. There is a level for everyone – no matter how fast or not that fast, with the 3km event designed to attract families, beginners and those who prefer to walk and take in the view.

Jetty2Jetty 2018 website has all the details, plus great tips on how to prepare for the day.
