The Beach2Beach is a family-friendly fun run that offers a special rate of $140 (Early Bird $120) for a family of up to 6 people (2 adults, 4 juniors). Each ‘Family Pack’ is open to between 3 and 6 family members, consisting of at least 1 adult and 2 juniors (17 years and below). Family race pack postage is available to safe on postage costs.

Things to know about Family Registrations

  • Each family registration must have a Family ‘Captain’ (Administrator)
  • To keep things simple, only the Family Captain can add family members (Participants) during the registration process.
  • Each individual within the Family can choose his or her own course option (13km, 6km, 3km). Note: There’s no longer a requirement for the whole family to run the one distance.
  • A Family can join an existing Team, but cannot create a new Team. Note: If the team does not yet exist, first create the team, then your Family can join that team.
  • Race Pack Postage: When you register your family, choose family postage only for the family captain. For all other family members, choose the pick-up race pack option. We will recognise you as a family and post all race-packs together. For the combined postaged you need to add all family members in one go. When adding family members at a later stage, new postage need to be paid.
