12th Annual Bribie Beach Bash

clip_image003[8]2011-10-02 Bribie Beach Bash 193 T20This iconic running event is now in its 12th 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.

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

2012-07-28 Cab 24-48 Event 669Laurie – “Many thanks for a well organised event. Timing system was fantastic. Great to see lap times and distance covered. Live timing was great too. I’m absolutely stoked at my first all nighter/12 hour. Didn’t expect that distance especially as I don’t perform as well in the cold. The trophy is outstanding. Different and distinctful. Love it. Many thanks to you and your team.”

Cassie – “Well done Geoff – absolutely fantastic run (pardon the pun) event!!! Timing chips huge success – beats the heck out of lap scorers. And thx for your encouragement on sat morn in getting me back out on the track.

Mallani – “Superb event Geoff, the timing system was FANTASTIC. It was soo very handy to see my lap time each and every lap. I wasn’t fussed about not seeing the placings as with these kind of events it’s not always necessary as you are generally doing your ‘own’ race and not racing everyone around you. Hope to see these timing guys back for Dusk to Dawn.”

Stephanie – “Thanks for such a great event Geoff! Perfect place or my first 6hr – what a great experience!”

Sarah – “Thanks for a great event guys! I really enjoyed it and it was good to meet so many awesome people! :-)”

Bill B – “Thanks Geoff to you Betty and all your helpers for putting on a great day, CRR,s had a ball.”

Stephen – “Cheers for an excellent run. Loved it, lollys an all. Book me in for next year Geoff… :)”
