Kingston 42.2km Full Marathon

This is a Diamond Sponsored event by Kingston Estate Hervey Bay. Introducing a Full 42.2km Marathon to Hervey Bay for the serious long distance runners. This will be our first race for the morning setting off at 5.30am. Be prepared for some interesting types of surfaces as you take on some of Hervey Bay’s most amazing sights while watching the sun rise on your run. Most of your marathon will be along the Charlton Esplanade Path from Urangan to Point Vernon and return. Be apart of the Inaugural Marathon and watch how it will bring Hervey Bay Alive with excitement when we spot you on the return heading towards the finishers Arch. You will have the crowd on their feet as you cross the line. There are no repeated loops on this course, Out and back. Don’t miss our early bird special on this one.

2km - All Abilities

BayBreak pride themselves on offering an event for the whole family to participate in. We are very much ‘all inclusive’ in sport. This 2km is designed for those new to running or have never run before and would like to ‘have a go’ or simply go for a 2km walk. Our ‘All Ability Athletes’ last year stole the show with their amazing ability, big smiles and high spirits. It proves it doesn’t matter what your ability is you can do it. Mums, dads and bubs this one is also for you, bring the pram and head out with like minded people.

Run 2km - Under 13yrs

Just for the kids, this gives them the chance to spread their wings and run like crazy in the 2km Children Run. They will start at the Bayswater under the Starting Arch and head out 1km on a closed road, turn around under the direction of the marshals at the 1km mark and head straight back to the finish line. The kids run will be timed and is up to 13 years of age. This was our biggest run last year so come on kids, this is your time to get amongst the fun. Sorry no parents in this race. Your child must be able to run 2km without your as their aid.

5km Run

This is where some fun can happen with the 5km run. Our road is closed especially for this race and is a 2.5km out and back under the finish arch. Designed for all ages and all levels of fitness. Walk if you must the fun is being on a closed road and crowd cheering you along the finish runway. Your run will have an official time using the timing chip system. It’s not every day in Hervey Bay you can legally run on the road alongside the scenic bay. Don’t miss out on the early bird special.

Triathlon

Bay Break Multisport Festival will run the Triathlon on Sunday for the second year. After huge success and healthy fun and competition we are proud to include it once again. Every child no matter what age can have a go with others their own age. Whether that be for the first time and of course our ‘buddies’ are there to give a hand on the swim course to Adults having a go at the ‘Come & Tri Adults’ this year offering both a short and longer distance. The festival also offers an official Sprint Distance for the Triathletes out there who maybe working towards improving race times. Teams for Triathlon are also a huge part of our day with not everyone one able to do the full swim, bike, run. It’s all about the participate, fun and inclusion.
