The Sunday Mail Suncorp Bank Bridge to Brisbane Day is Queensland's largest fun run. It starts at the Sir Leo Hielscher Bridge in Murarrie and follows the Brisbane River to the Brisbane Showgrounds in Bowen Hills.
Take on the 5.1 degree incline of the bridge in the 10km event or snake around river to the Showgrounds in the 5km.
The iconic Bridge to Brisbane Fun Run is now turning into a whole day event. Tackle the run in the morning and once you’ve finished, relax with family and friends in the ‘Finish Village’. With plenty of entertainment, a dedicated kids space and food vendors galore, you can set aside the rest of the day for celebrating.
Bridge to Brisbane Day is big on playing dress-ups with each year attracting more imaginative costumes than the last. There are prizes for both the best dressed individual and the best dressed team.
So don your tutus, slip on your novelty animal onesies, jump into your secret super hero uniform and join the tens of thousands of other revellers to pound the pavement for what is set to be another great day out in Brisbane!

Official Event Ambassador, ITU Hall of Famer and World Triathlon Champion, Emma Carney returns to Adelaide for the event.
Asked about the Adelaide course, she said “the course is challenging.
I believe you will need to have good bike skills. The runs are more challenging than they look too. The design of the course provides some great viewing points, so it should be a great spectacle.”
