Beach to BrotherTown Beach, Port Macquarie, NSW

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!

Bryon 2 Bruns Beach RunBrunswick Heads, New South Wales, AU

The Byron2Bruns Beach Run is series of two individual Fun Runs (5km + 10km) that take place on the iconic stretch of sand between Belongil Creek (just north of Byron Bay) and the Brunswick Surf Life Saving Club in Brunswick Heads, NSW.

There is a 5km race (for runners only) introduced in 2016. The race is a 2.5km out and back loop that starts and finishes at Brunswick SLSC. This is a great race for those not used to long distances on the sand.

The 10km Fun Run starts at Belongil Creek and finishes at Brunswick SLSC. Walkers and runners are both encouraged to take part in this event. FREE shuttle buses provided by BVC take runners from Brunswick Heads to the starting line at Belongil Creek. This takes all hassle away from parking and pickups as everyone's vehicles will be waiting at the finish line.

Australian Outback MarathonTerrigal, New South Wales, AU

The Australian Outback Marathon has four running events; the full marathon, half marathon, 11km run and 6km run which all use sections of the same course. The terrain varies throughout the course; with most on unsealed roads, bush trails and tracks. The red earth route takes runners on a journey through Australias Outback with stunning views of Ayers Rock.

Like most adventure marathons around the world, the varying terrain does not measure to AIMS standards even though it has been measured and certified by an official AIMS course measurer Just so you know!
