What’s new for Bridge To Brisbane in 2016?

They say change is as good as a holiday and here at Bridge to Brisbane Day HQ, we tend to agree, which is why we’re SO excited to let you in on some of the changes to race day in 2016 that will have you putting Bridge to Brisbane Day at the top of your bucket list!



Kicking off near the top of Roma Street Parklands in Spring Hill, the 10km route will take you over not one… but THREE iconic Brisbane bridges (have your Instagram open and at the ready for this one… and make sure you use #BestTimeBNE while you’re at it!). But wait, there’s MORE! You’ll also power through two tunnels before crossing the finish line in scenic South Bank for a day full of fun. Post-race, all Bridge to Brisbane Day runners will be treated to a selection of ‘Bib-ileges’ from select venues on Little Stanley Street. Find out more about the new 10km course right here.


The Story Bridge will be closed to become a highlight of Bridge to Brisbane Day runners in 2016. Beginning at Captain Burke Park, 5km runners with pound over the iconic Story Bridge, before looping back through Kangaroo Point and descending down to South Bank to cross the finish line in your best time ever. Find out more about the new 5km course right here.


This year the fun doesn’t stop when the race does – you can celebrate the beauty of Brisbane for the entire day in our brand new ‘Finishers Village’. South Bank will come alive with their much loved selection of restaurants and retailers who will be offering race goers exclusive bib privileges… a.k.a ‘Bib-ileges’ to enjoy and treat yourself with after the race.


Early bird entries are now OPEN and will be available until Sunday 3 July, so if you want to ensure you score yourself a spot at Brisbane’s best day… hop to it –the 2016 event is strictly capped at 30,000 participants.

So what are you waiting for? Enter now and get set for a day full of fun and fitness and find out why Bridge to Brisbane Day is Brisbane’s most celebrated fun run.
