The Queensland Government is proud to support Queensland’s largest community fun run – the 2021 Sunday Mail Transurban Bridge to Brisbane.
Bridge to Brisbane is an opportunity to experience our State capital in all its spring splendour, taking in the sights from the Gateway Bridge at Murarrie, along the upgraded Kingsford Smith Drive and through the gates of the historic Brisbane Showgrounds.
While this iconic event was postponed last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it returns with gusto in 2021. Around 32,000 participants are expected to lace-up their shoes for the
in-person event or for a ‘virtual race’, orchestrated via the Bridge to Brisbane app.
Over the last 25 years, Bridge to Brisbane has inspired Queenslanders of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to embrace a healthy and active lifestyle. Getting more people moving is a priority shared by the Queensland Government’s health promotion agency, Health and Wellbeing Queensland, which is on a mission to lower the rates of disease and improve the health of every Queenslander.
And once again, Bridge to Brisbane participants will be running up their pedometers for a good cause. Since the first event in 1997, participants have raised more than $10.8 million for their chosen charities, helping their fellow Queenslanders overcome physical, mental and financial hardship.
I thank all who have contributed to the tremendous success of Bridge to Brisbane over the last quarter of a century, and I wish all participants a fit, fun and friendly outing this November.
