Jetty2Jetty - Redcliffe Gets Running
Runners, walkers and spectators will take to the streets of Redcliffe this month for Queensland’s most scenic and longest running fun run, The Jetty 2 Jetty.

Now in its 33rd year, the event caters to all ages and fitness abilities and consists of four different races ranging from three kilometres to the 21-kilometre half marathon.

Kicking off on Sunday, July 22 at Crockatt Park in Woody Point, the first race will be off and running at 6.45am, with the final race at 9.15am

Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism CEO Shane Newcombe says it is an excellent event for the local community as well as local businesses.

“Everyone really gets involved in the Jetty 2 Jetty,” he says.

“On race day you’ll see thousands of locals lining the course sidelines with painted signs cheering on runners.

“It’s a great atmosphere, and just as festive is the post-race brunch - Redcliffe’s cafes and restaurants fill up with participants as they celebrate their achievements with a big hearty meal post-race.”

Following the picturesque Bayside waterfront, the course is a drawcard for participants who can take in one of South East Queensland’s most scenic seaside stretches while completing the fun run.

“The most unique element of the event is the spectacular view - there’s nothing else quite like it,” Mr Newcombe says.

“Second to that, there is just a fantastic energy on race day.

“Experienced racers encourage first-time runners, and the support crews are on the side, cheering on all the participants.”

Mr Newcombe says there really is something on offer for everyone, whether participating in the run itself or not.

“After the race (or before) participants can browse and shop through the Peninsula Private Hospital Healthy Living Expo for the latest activewear, footwear and information on health services,” he says.

“From serious athletes to first-timers, everyone is encouraged to get involved, try their best and have some fun.

“The highlight of the Jetty 2 Jetty is always seeing runners, who have been sweating it out in training for months, achieve their personal best. If you’re not running this year, come along and support any family or friends who are running.”
