BEACHRUNS the event is about enjoying outdoor recreation. Since 2013 the club has hosted this running event for social and competitive runners, with a Team option for the 20km distance. BEACHRUNS makes the most of one of the most special features of the local Mission Beach beaches – they are long, join up, and the sand is compact. All distances from 5km to the Half-Marathon are run totally on beach sand.
Many participants will walk the short course, or push a stroller, or make a family day of it. Most are social runners or in teams enjoying the tropical hospitality of a weekend in Mission Beach. Some are out to break course records.
Either way it is a fun day out on the beach in the tropics!
