Jetty 2 Jetty Still on Course
Jetty 2 Jetty, the longest running fun run in South East Queensland, will this year mark it’s 34th year. Despite a change in date because of COVID-19 restrictions, the event is still expected to draw a crowd.

CEO of Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism, Shane Newcombe said the event has a rich history on the Redcliffe Peninsula with a great race-day atmosphere.

“The course is just breathtaking. It’s not called Queensland’s most scenic fun run for no reason. When you’re running along the foreshore as the sun rises, it is truly magical,” he said.

The event will once again include 3km, 5km, 10km and half-marathon race events. While there have been several changes to the way the event is being run, Shane said all four race courses will remain the same as last year.

“There will be some changes to fruit and water stations along the course due to COVID-19 restrictions, but the beautiful scenic course everyone knows and loves will be staying the same,” he said.

Shane said detailed COVID-Safe measures will be available on the website once the plan is approved. However, if the region was to go back into tighter COVID-19 restrictions, the event will be cancelled, and registrants will receive a refund.

“There will be more toilets, more handwashing stations, a changed layout, line management measures, extra cleaners, contact tracing measures and staggered race starts,” Shane said.

The popular Healthy Living Expo will still go ahead too, although visitors can expect a scaled-back format this year to avoid over-crowding. The full list of vendors is still being finalised.

For anyone considering whether they should take part, Shane said the event caters for all walks of life.

“If you have a passion for running, want to walk for a cause, or feel like going for a pleasant stroll, sign up for Jetty 2 Jetty. What’s more, you’ll get to experience the beauty of the Redcliffe Peninsula as you complete the course,” he said.
