Early bird registrations close soon for Queensland’s longest running fun run – the Jetty 2 Jetty Fun Run.

Participants wanting to take advantage of early bird discounts will need register before they close on February 4.

The 2022 event will be held on Sunday, July 17 at Pelican Park, Clontarf, but organisers are urging those interested to register early as categories are expected to sell out again this year.

“Last year’s Jetty 2 Jetty was hugely popular,” Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism (MBRIT) CEO Shane Newcombe says.

“We had a waiting list a mile long for people wanting to register for sold out race categories.”

The 2022 event will again offer a range of categories suited to runners and walkers of all ages and fitness levels, including 3km, 5km, 10km and 21km (half-marathon).

“After successfully introducing the 10km Elite Wheelchair category in 2021, we are proud to include this as part of the 2022 event program,” Mr Newcombe says.

“MBRIT is committed to taking even further steps to making all of our events more inclusive and accessible.”

Jetty 2 Jetty recently made strides onto the national and international stage by achieving official course certification from AIMS, the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races.

“Our event runners are now eligible to set records and achieve marathon qualification points by participating in the J2J,” Mr Newcombe says.

Athletes to inspire best J2J yet

Mayor Peter Flannery says with the hype of South East Queensland securing the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the achievement of Aussie athletes at Tokyo 2020, the stage is set for the 2022 Jetty 2 Jetty to be the most thrilling one yet.

“Whether you’re a serious runner looking to achieve your best half-marathon, a business looking for a fun corporate event or have simply been inspired by our Olympic athletes − Jetty 2 Jetty is the must-do running event on the Sunshine State calendar.”

Entry prices include official 2022 merchandise with 21km and 10km entrants receiving a J2J singlet, while 3km and 5km entrants will receive a J2J visor. Merchandise is also available for purchase at the time of registration.

Runners can save on their entry fee by signing up, or joining, a team of 10 or more by May 2, receiving a 10 per cent discount.

The Jetty 2 Jetty Fun Run is proudly presented by Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism (MBRIT) and Moreton Bay Road Runners in partnership with Moreton Bay Regional Council.
