Brisbane River Run

by Sally Foster (follow)
A great walking or running route in Brisbane

One of my favourite ways to start my day is by taking my toddler for a walk in his pram. He cuddles his stuffed puppy and I have a coffee in hand and we pound the pavement. Walking outside can provide great mental clarity, as well as a good chance to move your body.

Lucky for us Brisbane Mums, this city has some incredible walking tracks designed to show the city off. I have been on the lookout for another one, and came across the Brisbane River Run.

This mapped route has different options for short or long courses, and can be for either a walker like me, or a runner. You can take in the parks of Roma Street, Southbank and the Botanic Gardens. They are all great places to stop for some family time or a picnic.

The route also shows off the Goodwill Bridge, Story Bridge and Kangaroo Point Cliffs. All the best sites of Brisbane basically! Kangaroo Point Cliffs are a great chance to do some stair runs if you are felling really energised. Probably not for the pram though...If you make it to the Story Bridge, Captain Burke Park has a great playground.



The Brisbane River Run route has been marked for training purposes, so if you are training for an upcoming run, you can keep track. Brisbane City Council has been kind enough to provide a map. You can download it on your phone and complete the 3.35km, 6.47km or 8km routes. Or all three over different days.

So how do you get there? There are plenty of public transport options. Check out the translink site to see what works best for you.

If you have loved doing the Brisbane River Run, why not take in another of the multitude of trails that Brisbane has to offer. Here is a list of trails, including public art and heritage trails.

One of my other favourites that is much shorter if you are really just out for a leisurely stroll is the Brisbane River Walk. The floating walkway connects New Farm to the Howard Street Wharves and the Brisbane CBD. It is 870m long and provides scenic views of the river.

Where is your favourite place to go walking? Please let us know in the comments below, we would love to hear from you!
