At the finish you will receive something sweet and something cold.


If there are enough entries, we will have category prize money and a lucky draw. Unfortunately we do not have any real sponsors yet.

Fully equipped paramedical team on site during the race.


All photos taken during the race will be available to be downloaded from our Facebook page at no additional cost.

We are runners and local residents from Coombabah, and we spend a lot of time running/biking in the Coombabah Lake Conservation Area (CLCA).

Coombabah wetlands is part of the internationally significant Southern Moreton Bay Marine Park and is registered in the Ramsar Convention on wetlands of international importance.

To keep the experience as pristine as possible, we endeavour to limit the entries and give and keep the numbers as small and personal as possible.

We love animals and in future events we would like to partner up and support local animal welfare organisations.
