The Byron Bay Lighthouse Run is back.

The Byron Bay Lighthouse Run is back for its 14th year but as a virtual event over November 14-21.

‘After cancelling last year we really wanted to keep the event alive and give the community something fun to look forward to in 2021. Covid restrictions meant we couldn’t include everyone – so we’re going virtual instead,’ event organiser Lisa Parkes said.

This means that anyone around Australia can do the six kilometre walk or 10km run in their own area, at anytime over the two week period.

Participants map out a ten or six km route in their local government area, adhering to any restrictions that apply, gather with friends and family if possible, get dressed up and make it fun, take some snaps, post them on social media and then upload their times to the online portal. www.byronbaylighthouserun.com.au.

The last actual Lighthouse Run held in 2019 attracted around 800 entrants from all over the east coast.
