BRRC Events are held each fortnight on a Sunday morning, normally at 6am, but sometimes at 6.30am during winter for safety reasons, so it is best to check the relevant event page for current information and start times.
All events consist of a 5k run and other distances up to 35k during the peak running season in the lead up to the Gold Coast Marathon.
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.
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.
Due to COVID restrictions, we are limited in numbers and registration will close when we reach our maximum number of competitors.
ON RACE MORNING
Arrive early, as parking is always tight, particularly with our Championship race attendances close to 300.
Be prepared to jog/walk some distance from your vehicle, and please respect our neighbours by keeping noise levels to a minimum.
Please turn up to the Pre-race Briefing 5 minutes before start-time, with your timing chip attached towards the front of your shoe. If you forget your timing chip, you can run but you will not receive an 'official' time.
If you are a new member, be sure to arrive early and pick up your 'shoe tag' from the Timing Chip table.
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.
Finally, we ask that you check the relevant event webpage for updated event details and instructions when registering for each event.
Due to the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, all events have resumed along our normal course
