The 2019 Byron2Bruns fun run has raised more than $4,000 for Brunswick Heads nippers.

A long walk on the beach Sunday afternoon became an excuse to raise more than $4,000 for children learning surf safety.

More than 200 people of various ages and abilities turned up to either run, walk or cheer others running and walking from Byron’s Main Beach to the Brunswick Heads Surf Club.

A small group of extra-determined people chose to run from the club to Byron first.

Byron2Bruns Beach Run Event Secretary Roger Curran said Monday final results of the fun-run’s race element were still being finalised but ‘it was a lovely afternoon’.

‘The nippers did a morning tea and the kids had great fun on the bouncing castle,’ Mr Curran said.

The annual event is a fundraiser for the Brunswick Heads Surf Club, where organisers have recently won approval from the Byron Shire Council for major upgrades.

But Mr Curran said money raised as part of the weekend’s fun-run would be used to buy new ‘boards and cozzies’ for nippers learning to swim, surf and help others on the beach.
