Bells Bash Cliff Run

The Bells Bash Cliff Run is a fun run held along the cliff top ocean track from the Jan Juc Surf Club to the iconic Bells Beach. The run has been a major fundraising event for the Jan Juc Surf Life Saving Club since 2004. The Bells Bash Cliff Run offers a range of distances to suit an array of fitness and age levels.

Junior Juc Bash (1.5km)

1.5km – perfect for junior runners aged 5-12 years and a great introduction to fun runs. The Junior Juc Bash 1.5km starts at the Jan Juc SLSC on Clubhouse Road, Jan Juc, and heads along the marked and manned tracks towards Rocky Point, then along the Jan Juc Beach for a sand run home. Our youth club members are out in force supporting these junior runners along the way. Parents are welcome to run with younger entrants in this event.

Bells Bash 4km

A shorter run distance along the spectacular cliff track with sweeping ocean views with a turn around point at the Steps Car Park.  The event starts on at Clubhouse Road and heads along Carnarvon Ave to Ocean Boulevard where it joins the spectacular cliff track with sweeping ocean views with a turn around point at the Steps Car Park. The return leg follows the cliff track all the way to the finish point at the new Jan Juc Surf Life Saving Club.

Bells Bash 8km

The original 8km long distance run along the iconic cliff track to the turn-around point at the world-famous Bells Beach.  The Bells Bash 8km event starts on Clubhouse Road and heads along Carnarvon Ave to Ocean Boulevard where it joins the spectacular cliff track with sweeping ocean views with a turn around point at the world-famous Bells Beach. The return leg follows the cliff track all the way to the finish point at the new Jan Juc Surf Life Saving Club with breath-taking views of Jan Juc Beach.

How do you record my time?

Every competitor is provided with an electronic timing device on their numbered race bib that must be worn to record their time. Timing pads are located at the start and the finish lines to record competitor times and results will be available on the Jan Juc Surf Club’s website later in the day of the race.

Do I need a medical check up?

Everyone who competes in these events should be a regular runner and should have trained for their entered distance and regular medical check ups are encouraged. If you have not been running  for a while or have never run in a fun run before, you should have a medical check-up.

When do I get the event T-Shirt?

Event T-Shirts are available on the day when event bags are collected from the registration area.

What do I do if I am unable to compete on the day?

If you cannot compete for personal reasons or because you are unwell - email events@janjucsurfclub.com.au with the details. Please note that there are no refunds. If you have not collected your event entry pack with the event t-shirt – it will be mailed to you.

Who runs the event and what do the entry fees go towards?

Jan Juc Surf Life Saving Club’s volunteer lifesavers provide event management and safety for this event with hundreds of club members involved in the delivery of the event on the day.

This event is an important fund-raising event for the Jan Juc Surf Life Saving Club and all money raised helps keep volunteer patrols on the beach at Jan Juc, keeping community and visitors safe.
