    Event Details

    10 km run - 9.15am

    Take on 10 laps of Bondi Beach, starting at the North Bondi Surf Club and turning at the first ramp at South Bondi.

    4 km run - 9.00am

    This is the achievable distance for the weekend warrior, just 4 laps of the beach.

    A ‘skins type’ knockout beach sprint held over 70m. All starters line up in the first sprint, with a set number of the slowest eliminated each 60 second round until a winner is crowned. Some years as many as 15 rounds have been completed to find the fastest and most fit competitor!


    Celebrity Bolt - 10.45am

    Junior Bolt - 11.00am

    Open Bolt - 11.30am


    Teams of 4 participants each run 150 metre up and down
    the golden sands of Bondi beach.

  • Even more action in 2018


    A major innovation in 2018 is the expansion of the event to include an ‘event village’, complete with sponsor activations for non-race participants to get involved. The Waverley Council has endorsed this expansion as a contributor to the local community, supporting the evolution into a whole day event. Now, it’s an even better event for the whole family with action on and off the sand including stalls, free activities, face painters, giveaways – plus so much MORE.


    Come along, enjoy a FREE,

    fun-filled day on the golden sands of our most famous beach.

    On Bondi. For Bondi.

    Help spread the word and help a great cause.
