Jetty fun run with views for a good cause

REGISTRATIONS are now open for the Jetty 2 Jetty Fun Run (J2J) around the Redcliffe Peninsula on Sunday, July 16.

Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism CEO Shane Newcombe said the the J2J, now in its 31st year, was an iconic event in the Moreton Bay Region.

"Each year thousands of participants from all over Australia, and even internationally, head to Redcliffe to join in the fun," he said.

"It's also great to see the whole community turn out to cheer on all the amazing entrants."

Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor Allan Sutherland said J2J was one of the most popular fun runs in Queensland.

"Whether you want to challenge yourself or walk with a group of friends, there's an event for everyone with 3km, 5km, 10km and half-marathon distances," Mayor Sutherland said.

"Taking part in J2J, not only do you get to take in the best views along Moreton Bay, you also help to make a difference, with a portion of all the monies raised going to the Leukaemia Foundation.

"If it's your first time or your 31st time, J2J is an event not to be missed."

The event starts at Crockatt Park, Woody Point and runs from 6-11am on July 16.
