It's all uphill at this family & festive event
Fitness and fun are on the menu in the inaugural Bulimba Burn on Sunday 3rd December 2017.
The Burn 333 - as it is known - is 333m of excruciating uphill running from the roundabout at the bottom of Oxford Street in Bulimba all the way to the top to the entrance to Bulimba State School on Wentworth Parade.
The organisers claim it to be "probably the shortest, steepest, toughest and silliest fun run in Brisbane, if not the whole, entire world". There will be 17 running events throughout the morning with 1000 runners expected.
