Bridge Runs Across Australia

So you want to help a charity, and you’re willing to run for it, but you want a good view, right? We have the perfect idea! A Bridge Run! There are Bridge Charity Runs all over Australia that promote healthy living and a great cause all while taking in some of the best views down under.

Bridge to Brisbane

This Sunday, 26th August is Queensland’s largest charity fun run in 2018! With over 30,000 people running the race every year, the Bridge to Brisbane run is sure to be a uniquely cherishable event! The best part? You get to run across the iconic Story Bridge and right past us here at Story Bridge Adventure Climb! Go big with the full 10K and cross not one, but three bridges! First, crossover the Go Between Bridge, then run over the Victoria Bridge, and finish it off at our favourite, the Story Bridge. If the 10K isn’t for you, just enjoy the day with a nice 5K. You’ll start at the Story Bridge and finish with everyone at the South Bank. No matter what you choose, you’re raising money for well deserving charities and experiencing Brisbane.

Now, if running isn’t your thing, we’ve got you covered at Story Bridge Adventure Climb. We have special climbs just for the Bridge Run event! A Dawn Climb will allow you to see the sunrise with the speed of the runners. A Day Climb will give you a breathtaking view of Brisbane without any cars on the bridge! Whether you decide to run or be a supporter, don’t miss the Bridge to Brisbane this year!

Blackmores Bridge Run

Sydney offers their own bridge run, with the Blackmores Bridge Run on 16 September, 2018. The course of this 10K takes you from your start at Bradfield Park across the main deck of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and completes at the Sydney Opera House. Pick your goal time and run for it! If you aren’t quite as interested in actually running the bridge run, watch it from above with our friends at BridgeClimb Sydney!

7 Bridges Walk

Sydney also offers the 7 Bridges Walk. While this may not be a bridge run, it offers some of Sydney’s most scenic locations and the ability to raise funds for a cancer-free future! This event put on by the Cancer Council is on 28 October, 2018. The course is 27km and winds its way around the beautiful Sydney Harbour. Make an eventful day out with friends and family, with plenty of food, entertainment, and fun along the way. Plus, do your best fundraising and get your name on the leaderboard of their website for everyone to see!

There are hundreds of other races around Australia.
