Our Runs

We have a wide range of runs to suit your needs –

Thursday Mob Runs

Most Thursdays you be able to see us departing from our clubrooms on Ocean Drive as one happy chattering group. Each week there is a 10km, 5km and 3km (run or walk) with everyone splitting into groups with a range of paces to suit your current ability, mood, training status and experience.

Each Thursday 5.45 from our clubrooms (Bunbury Recreation Ground, Ocean Drive)

It wasn’t the best weather for tonight’s Kieran Boothman watchless Run, but in spite of that our runners still showed up to test their pacing. 

Thursday Handicaps

Our handicap series is based over the summer with five handicap runs. These runs will have a staggered start with each person’s start time based on their previous run time. An enjoyable event that can be anyone’s race, just remember – you never know who may be sneaking up behind you!

As per our Club Calendar.

Thursday Club Championships

A series of six runs, the runs culminate in the final male and female champion of the club each year. Two runs each of 3km, 5km and 10km are run with points being awarded to the fastest runners. If racing isn’t your style never fear! You can use the runs to better yourself or just run at the pace that suits you.

As per our Club Calendar.

Saturday Caf-fez Runs

Join in with the very dedicated group that is the Caf-fez Runner’s. Meeting every Saturday at Caf-fez in town this group will run rain, hail or shine. This is for the longer runners and runs are usually around 90 minutes. This run also caters for a range of abilities with many groups running at different paces and distances.

Each Saturday at 6am from Caf-fez (20 Prinsep Street, Bunbury)

Tuesday Intervals

Each Tuesday 6am at our clubrooms (Bunbury Recreation Ground, Ocean Drive). Organised by our ever capable Dom. Come along if you enjoy speed work and are happy to be at the mercy of our organiser…(disclaimer – there are two tracks to allow for a range of different speeds, all levels are welcome!).

Setagaya 246 Half Marathon

Our club hosts a number of events each year which everyone is welcome to join.

Three Waters Running Festival

Our premier event of the year, the marathon is known as one of the most scenic in the state stretching along the spectacular Bunbury Back Beach, circling the native bird filled Big Swamp, speeding along the redeveloped Koombana Bay and looping around the dolphin playground of the Leschenault Inlet. Other distances available are a 5km, 10km, half marathon and 50km Ultra.

Australia Day Fun

A 5km and 10km event which loops around the Leschenault Inlet. A great way to kick off our national day and celebrate our great country.

The 2025 event will be the 33rd running of the Bunbury Runners Club Australia Day Fun Run. 

The Bunbury Runners Club welcomes the support of our naming rights sponsor for The Apprentice and Traineeship Company, and extend a huge thank you, also to all the other sponsors that have made this event happen. 

Part of the proceeds from the 2024 event were donated to Bunbury Soup Van

Women’s Fun Run

A wonderful event for women, often used for those starting their running journey and looking for a safe and encouraging place to learn about running and meet new people. The club hosts a number of training runs leading up to the event for any ladies who have registered. Refer to the event page for further details.

Father’s Day Run

One for the blokes! This event is an all-inclusive family run, it’s not a race but a great way to celebrate our Dads. Run around big swamp with your family and enjoy some light refreshments and socialising after.

Other Activities

Once a member of the club you will have the opportunity to be involved in a range of great activities, some not even running! These include an annual end of year sundowner at a new location each year, the occasional surprise fun run (who know what it will involve!), bus trip runs to races or nearby towns and the opportunity to race in the Setagaya Half Marathon as a part of the sister city arrangement just to name a few.


All of our events raise funds for beneficiary. Beneficiaries are chosen by the race directors and event managers at the time of the event. We have a history of donating to Bunbury Food Van, Bayla Cancer Retreat, The Royal Flying Doctor Service, The Salvation Army, Beyond Blue, The In Town Centre, Nixi Teen Mums, Doors Wide Open, Men’s Shed, South West Womens Health, Conquer Cycstic Fibrosis, South West Women’s Refuge, Shining Hope and more.
