Bridging the Gap

Bridging the Gap

By Dominic Hefferan on Aug 22 2018


The annual Bridge to Brisbane fun run's coming up this Sunday, celebrating its 22nd anniversary of encouraging people to get out and get active while also raising much-needed funds for a wide variety of worthy causes. We've run it a few times in the past, and it's a great day out!

When Is It?
 
Starting from 6am, Sunday 26th August, and running until 1pm, the fun run covers both a 5km and 10km course that winds its way through Brisbane landmarks and crossing the Go Between, Victoria, and Story Bridges.
 
 
What Is It?
 
Officially classed as a "mini-marathon", this is a fun way to get out and about for the day, and while there is a competitive element to the race, it's all for a good cause and runners can go at their own pace.
 
 
Why Is It?
 
The Bridge to Brisbane supports a wide range of charities, such as Guide Dogs Queensland, the Mater Little Miracles foundation, and Beyond Blue, and whether you want to run as a fundraiser, or just make a donation in support of the movement, it's a longstanding event to bridge the gap to those who need a little help.
 
 
Even if you're not looking to run this year, there's always a lot going on at every event, so make sure you get down to the Bridge to Brisbane fun run this Sunday!
