10k Handicap, 5K 

Please note that BRRC is now operating events under an approved COVID-Safe Plan.

This event is open for BRRC MEMBERS ONLY to complete either a 5k or 10K on our normal 5k loop course beside the Brisbane River.


Start time  is  6.00am on Sunday 29th November, 2020 

Note:- a 8.00am 'cut-off time' applies to this event

As we are operating our events under an approved COVID-Safe Plan, members must pre-register online from the Monday prior to each event date, until 7pm on the Saturday night before the event.

No late entries will be accepted and you will not be able to register on the morning of the event due to our COVID-Safe Plan.

Our events are currently open for Members Only as we cannot cater for Visitors at this stage, but we are hopeful this will change soon. 

However, we invite any non-members who would like to participate in this event and our events for the remainder of the year to

join now as a member.  New Members who join after October 1, 2020 will be able to participate in the remaining 2020 events and all 2021 events.

Any spectators or anyone accompanying a competitor and not running, will also have to register with you.

An important part of the Pre-Race 'on-line' Registration is to watch the Pre-race Briefing Video and read the COVID-Safe Plan. You need to acknowledge understanding of both of these before registration can be accepted.


Events are limited in numbers and registration will close when we reach our maximum number of competitors.

Event Registration will open on Monday 23rd November, and will close 7pm sharp on Saturday 28th November.


IMPORTANT EVENT INFORMATION - please read before you register 

When registering for the 10k Handicap event, you will be asked to nominate the time you will complete the run.

  • Please be honest with your estimated 10k time - you may be disqualified from winning the 'Handicap' event if this differs significantly from the time you are capable of running 10k on the day.

  • If you have registered  for the 5k event, then you will start at 6am as normal

  • Your Start Time for the 10k Handicap event is based on your Estimated 10k Time.



If you feel unwell, have any symptoms of a cold or flu – stay at home and get tested. This includes our wonderful and generous volunteers, officials, competitors and spectators. Click here for symptoms


  • You must pre-register online by 7:00pm on Saturday night before the race. No late entries can be accepted and there will be no race entries available on race mornings. This is important to make sure we comply with the current guidelines. We will also have to cap numbers so you should aim to register as soon as Pre-race Entries open.


  • Our events are currently open for Members Only as we cannot cater for Visitors at this stage, but we are hopeful this will change soon. 


  • Spectators are not encouraged at this early stage of return to racing. If you need someone with you, they need to maintain social distancing from the competitors and others and they will need to be registered when you enter online.


  • Bring your own water bottles and breakfast. We will not have our normal water tables and we can’t provide our normal breakfast at the moment.


  • Please do not congregate in groups before, or after, the race. The winners and placegetters’ medals will be presented when the results are published online.


  • Please do arrive in time to warm-up and be at the start line at 5:55am.  The Pre-race Briefing will be provided online but any other important safety messages will be delivered at the start line if needed.


  • Follow any BRRC signs or other COVID safety markings. These are here for your safety and to ensure we are complying with our COVID-Safe Plan.


  • Please DO NOT ENTER the SBSC Clubhouse - it is out of bounds for everyone apart from Club Officials and Volunteers.​​

    • Toilets are located in Orleigh Park

    • Leave your belongings in your car

    • ​Bikes will need to be locked up outside the Clubhouse



IMPORTANT – Please do not attend BRRC ...

  • If you have any symptoms of COVID 19 – See here for what they are

  • If you have been in a designated COVID hot spot in the last 14 days or have been in contact with someone that has been in a designated COVID hot spot in the past 14 days


In accordance with our COVID-Safe Plan, runners should not turn up earlier than they need to warm up, and be on the start line 5 minutes before the published start time.


You must maintain Social Distancing until you arrive at the start line.

Please ensure your timing chip is attached towards the front of your shoe. 

Please note that the WIRE TIES SHOULD NOT BE USED as they may interfere with the new timing chip 'shoe tag'. 


You should now use the SHOELACE to secure the tag to your running shoe.

If you have not yet collected your timing chip, be sure to arrive in time to collect it from the Chip Collection table.

If you have registered online and forget your timing chip, you can run but you will not receive an 'official' time, as we cannot issue temporary timing chips.

The Timing Tent is only accessible by the designated results officials only, so you must not go near the Timing officials.


There will be a separate table for collecting of chips and for discussions with officials, if required.

Remember, Social Distancing applies when interacting with any official or volunteer.  Also, there is to be no shaking of hands, high fives or other contact to be had post-race.

Please leave BRRC as soon as possible after you have finished your run and maintain Social Distancing at all times when off the course.
