The Bells Bash Cliff Run will take place on Friday 14th January 2022 backed up the next morning, Saturday 15th January 2022, by the Danger Swim Series. Register here.
The Bells Bash 4km and 8km courses take runners along a picturesque undulating track between Jan Juc and the world famous Bells Beach. The course is challenging, but is regularly used by runners and walkers and overlooks much of the stunning coastline between the two points. Runners can expect to complete the 8km course in between 30 – 45 minutes. Joggers can expect to complete the 8 km course in between 45 – 60 minutes.
Specially struck Bells Bash medallions will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place-getters in all categories for the 4km and 8km events. All place-getters will also receive wonderful prizes. Heaps of random sports gear giveaways will be awarded before, during and after both races. Each competitor receives an entrant pack including a T-shirt.
The Junior Juc Bash is an introduction to fun runs for children aged from 5 – 12 years with a 1.5km run along the beach and cliff tops of Jan Juc Beach. The aim is to have fun and enjoy the participation. It is not a timed event and there are random prizes presented at the conclusion of the race. Younger kids will have “Juc Man” to assist them on their independent journey, guiding them and eliminating the need for parents to accompany their children.The first 200 entrants will receive a free Junior Juc Bash T-Shirt.
A great day of running for the whole family
Check out our other major event - The Danger Ocean Swim Series
The Danger Swim Series at Pt Danger (Torquay Front Beach) is one of the biggest and most popular open water swims in Victoria. This event is run by the Jan Juc SLSC at the calm, protected and picturesque location that the locals fondly refer to as "Cosy Corner". This idyllic setting is protected by Point Danger.
With the start and finish being almost in the same place by virtue of the triangular course, the event provides a great day for spectators. The natural amphitheatre of the grass slopes overlooking the course allows excellent viewing of the whole event. A line of mature Norfolk pines allows plenty of shade and it is a great location for a race day picnic. Torquay is an easy drive of a little over an hour from Melbourne and plenty of free parking at the event is available. Permanent buoys define the approximate course year round for those wishing to train.
There are four race distances incorporated into the Danger Swim Series – 500m, 1km, 2.5km and 5km – attracting around 2000 competitors, with ages ranging from 9 – 75. Prizes are awarded to all age group categories for men and women, as well as spot prizes being awarded throughout the day. Each competitor receives an entrant pack including a T-shirt, swim cap and other goodies.
Attracting competitors from around the country, including previous winner and current record holder, Australian Ironman Champion Ky Hurst of Queensland in the record time of 8 minutes 47 seconds for the 1km course. Good luck beating that!
