• The Event

Before we create a sea, you need to make a few waves

This year, 12 000 women will create the biggest, boldest sea of pink to ever sweep through Brisbane. With every age, fitness level and personality you can imagine taking part, it’s going to be quite the party.

The sea of pink is a powerful symbol of support, showing every woman with breast cancer that they are not alone. In fact, there are thousands of women willing to fill the streets to show them support.

And we want you to be among them. 

Register before midnight 9 February to receive discounted early bird registration and FREE postage of your rebel race kit.

fast facts

Date: Sunday 4 March 2018

Time: The first event category starts at 6.15 am

Venue: Cultural Forecourt, South Bank, Brisbane (look for the sea of pink near the Wheel of Brisbane)

Course length:  Run or walk the 5 km course or the 10 km course

Run or Walk?:  When registering this year you will need to let us know if you will be running or walking either the 5 km or 10 km course. This is so we can ensure you are in the right wave and have the right start time.

Run: This category is for everyone from our seasoned runners to our first timers. There are two running waves for both the 5 km and 10 km distance, so don’t worry you don’t have to keep pace with the really speedy people unless you want to!  During the registration process you will be asked if you will be running 6.30/km pace or under or over 6.30/km. The answer to this question will confirm which wave you will be running in and which bib colour you will receive.  Your Race Bib will have a timing chip so you'll be able to look up your time after the event.

Top tip: 6.30/km pace is someone who can complete a 5 km in 30 minutes or a 10 km in 1 hour.

Walk: This category is for people who wan to walk the whole course (or most of it) while taking in the beautiful Brisbane City views and enjoying all of the fun along the way. You will not be timed.
