A crowded start line at last year’s 10–kilometre Byron2Bruns run/walk.

Runners taking on the Byron2Bruns Beach Run on August 25 will now have the option of a five-kilometre course as well as the traditional long run from Belongil.

Since 2012 the Byron2Bruns Beach Run has established itself as an annual event that combines fun and competition in a way that makes it an event for all the family.

This fundraiser was launched as a 10-kilometre walk/run from Belongil back to the Surf Club at Brunswick but now runners can choose to do a five-kilometre run starting and finishing at the club house.

‘The whole Brunswick Surf Club gets behind the event and will be out in force on the beach and also back at the club house where there will be coffee, a barbecue, a jumping castle, and a great friendly atmosphere,’ organiser Roger Curran said.

‘The event is now recognised as one of the best-value fun runs on the calendar and, with an early start and time for an unhurried wind down at the finish, it really offers entrants an inspiring taste of the Brunswick experience,’ he said.

Go to byron2brunsbeachrun.com to register, as well as find lots of details and running tips to help you get the most out of the event.
