    • Did the Half Marathon in 2014

      Breath taking course course around the picturesque Newcastle coast line a must see and do type run especially if the sun is out!!! Course combines the challenge of a few sneaky hills and some amazing fast flat sections. A great course to aim for a PB. Great atmosphere and finish line.

    About the event
    From the organiser

    Use this year's Beach to Brother trail running event as an excuse to visit the impressive and stunning Mid-North Coast!

    The Beach to Brother Marathon is just one of a few distances offered on the long weekend of Sunday 6th October 2019. Also on offer is a Half-Marathon, a 10km Dash, a 5km Fun Run, and a Team Relay Marathon (up to 4 persons). All of these distances are based on the beautiful Mid-North Coast of NSW; they start in various beautiful locations along the marathon course, and all finish atop North Brother Mountain one of the most scenic lookouts on the North Coast, located in Dooragan National Park, Laurieton.

    Both the individual and team relay marathon events start at Town Beach, Port Macquarie; the half-marathon starts at Lake Cathie Beach; the 10km run/walk starts at Camden Haven Beach, and the 5km run/walk starts adjacent Laurieton Pool.

    The courses have been designed to provide a similar challenge to races such as the Six-Foot Track Marathon, the Coastal Classic, and the Raffertys Resort Run. The four distances all offer a great challenge to runners/walkers of every ability. Other than the 5km run/walk, the runs all encompass beautiful beaches, coastal paths and trails, and as was named by competitors in 2016 the hill from hell at the end! The four distances on offer all provide both mental and physical challenges in amongst some of the most beautiful and scenic coastline the Mid-North Coast has to offer.

    Book in for an awesome challenge; bring your friends and family along to compete or spectate; then, relax in paradise!

    • Did the 10k Dash in 2018

      With two knee replacements I was stoked that I did it. It was harder than I thought and I was suffering vertigo but the fact that I finished a(and not last) I couldnt have been happier. The view at the top was amazing and I think everyone did an excellent job organizing it. As I had not done anything like this before and came from Nambucca Heads I was a bit confused as the were to register. I had sent an email a few days before but no one answered it. I just went to the surf club and asked everyone and before long the girl arrived for registration. I wasnt aware you were suppose to register the day before but in the end it was all good. Cheers
    • Did the Half Marathon in 2018

      I was ok with the information provided prior to the race, however I know the area. I did hear of other competitors who were surprised at the intensity of the incline up North Brother Mountain at the end.
