Burnie 10 - Sunday October 22
The Burnie Ten is an Australian 10 km road race and is held on a Sunday in October every year. Between 3000 - 5000 participants usually take part. The Burnie Ten is held on the North West Coast of Tasmania city of Burnie along the Emu Bay.
The race provides an opportunity to participate with the nation’s elite athletes. It’s a flat, fast, out-and-back, runner-friendly course that attracts competitors from all over Tasmania. The race enjoys terrific public support – not only from genuine runners and those not normally so active who set themselves a goal together but also the spectators lining the course, cheering everyone on.
