13th Annual Bribie Beach Bash

2011-10-02 Bribie Beach Bash 056 H2clip_image0038_thumbThis 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.

This MS Charity Fundraising Event is cheap to enter, not for profit, instead forwarding the proceeds to our beneficiary Multiple Sclerosis Qld. It is an lovely day out for the family with a BBQ to follow.

clip_image0039_thumbCOME ALONG FOR A FUN RUN /WALK. EAT, DRINK & LAUGH FOR MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS QLD.

YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN

I only started running ultras around 18 months ago. During 2012 I finished the Canberra 50km, Northface 100, Salomon Surfcoast Century, Rollercoaster Run plus a couple of marathons. This is both my first time based ultra and 48 hour run so should be a challenging weekend.

2013-02-09 Dusk to Dawn 3190Hi my name is James O’Brien I am 19 years old.

Ran my first 12hour race at Caboolture when I was 18 I have since then competed in class house 100mile, wild horse 60km and 30km and another 12 hour this year at Caboolture again. I love my ultras and am training for the 2016 Rio Olympics marathon.

Started competing in ultras about 5 years ago and love the challenge of pushing till there is nothing left. I’m never going to win any awards but I’m slowly improving my times or distances. I’ve met some fantastic people that I can now call friends through running in the events and hopefully that continues. Would love to do the Coast to Kosci one day. Will have to get the qualifying time or distance first!!!!

  • 2012 GH100 – 100 miles – 28:56:11
  • 2012 GH Flinders Tour 50km – 5:55:42
  • 2012 Gold Coast Marathon – 42km – Time 3:52:04
  • 2012 – 12  hr Caboolture – 90.5km

clip_image001Cassie Smith AKA "BONKERS"

Started running in 2005 and completed my first marathon in 2006….didn’t take me long to grasp the concept of ultra running………."when a marathon just isn’t enough"….

Have just completed number 52 – which is made up of 25 marathons and 27 ultras……Caboolture will be number 54.

Been a supporter of Geoff’s runs for a few years (both Caboolture and Bribie) but last year was my first venture out of the 6 hour run into 12 hour then the huge jump to 48 hour….. I had some pretty bad tummy issues that pulled me off the track for around 11 hours last year so I am very hopeful of a much better result this year.  I had a great year overall last year with successful runs at both Coburg 24 hr and Sri Chimnoy in Sydney 24 hr qualifying me for Coast to Kosci in December of which I made it to the 190k mark in the 240k race.

Big goal and plan for this year is to FINISH Coast to Kosci in December so the Caboolture 48 hour is a really good way for me to run for 2 days to get some excellent mileage in and practice my nutrition and race plan.   We will have our usual "Team Bonkers" tent set up with plenty of support crew and good cheer!!!

Very excited and looking forward to a fantastic weekend with Geoff and the crew…….

My short history of recent events & achievements is easy to keep brief.

  1. Recent events are limited.
  2. The achievement is always to finish and still be vertical.

2003-2006 Completed a few marathons. Best time 4hrs 12mins.

2010 Completed Northface 100. Time 23hrs 56mins.

The Northface 100 showed me I can keep moving for 24 hrs. Hence the challenge of 48hrs.

Regard me as a participant rather than a candidate for line honours, as my only competition is against myself.

I’ve done a total of 25 24h races, best performance in the World Champs, Steenbergen 2013 with 220.777km

I’ve done 4 48h races, best performance in Skövde, Sweden 2011 with 312,7 km

A few 12h races, best performance 2010, in Norway with 123,1 km

A total of 63 various Ultras since the first in 2004

I do mostly time ultras and don’t mind shorter tracks

Looking forward to push my pb a bit further this year
