Do I have to enter the 5km or 10km race? How do I know what Start Zone to select?
You can choose either the 5km or 10km race. The Start Zone is also your choice, and depends on your capability to complete the course in a certain time.  You can walk or wheel at your own pace.
 
Do I need to wear a uniform?
You will receive a Bridge to Brisbane shirt before the event, but it is not mandatory to wear.  So Team EpilepsyQLD stands out from the crowd we will be dressing up in our best purple gear. Remember to dress comfortably in clothes that are suitable for running or walking.
 
How do I get to the event?
Parking is limited, so public transport, Taxi or Uber is recommended. All Bridge to Brisbane participants receive free public transport on the event day until 3pm. Just show your official race number on Brisbane Transport buses, Queensland Rail trains, and Brisbane City Council CityHopper Ferries for free entry (CityCats not included).
