The Bondi Barefoot was first run in 2003 and has quickly developed into one of Australia’s most unique running events. It attracts over 400 runners from champion runners to recreational runners ranging in age from 15 to 70.
The event includes races over 3 distances – 10km, 4km and the Barefoot Bolt.
Come and enjoy this unique opportunity to run across Australia’s most famous beach (or cheer competitors along) while helping raise funds for North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club.
