Registrations are now open for the Annual Samford Fun Run, taking place on Sunday, September 8th 2019.

This wonderful, family-friendly, community charity event welcomes people of all ages and fitness levels to come along and run for a good cause. You can race or walk the course, push a pram, walk your dog or stroll with your family, all while enjoying Samford and its natural surrounds.

Since the inaugural event, participant numbers have grown steadily, with close to 600 entries recorded for last year’s North Brisbane fun run, yet despite its rising popularity, the event maintains its relaxed, family-feel and no-pressure atmosphere.

Run for Charity

Each year, all proceeds go towards the Samford Support Network, run by Barbara Kienast and a group of volunteers who assist local Samford residents in times of need.

In addition this year, the Samford Support Network and the Fun Run organisers have been touched by the situation of one local family who will also be supported by proceeds of the 2019 event.

Your North Brisbane Fun Run Options

The 10km

The 10km route can be walked, jogged, or ran. It takes place mostly over bitumen with a few stretches across gravel and grass. The course is very scenic and diverse, directing participants past Millen Farm, through bushland and local village streets.

Whether you’re an experienced runner looking for a challenge, or just after a lovely and lengthy walk to get back into fitness, this route caters to everyone.

The 5km

The 5km walk/run is geared towards people looking to improve their fitness. Lots of families, prams and dogs normally participate in this shorter route.
