Burgh To Beach from Helensburgh to Stanwell Park, NSW

Burgh To Beach is an 8km run from Helensburgh to Stanwell Park Beach in New South Wales, reviving a fun run from the 1980s.

In December 2011, local Helensburgh resident and sight impaired athlete Nathan Johnston came up with an idea of a charity run from Helensburgh to Stanwell Park Beach. Nathan's vision was for this run to commence at the historic Helensburgh town proceed down into the rainforest community of Otford up to the scenic "Bald Hill" lookout and down to Stanwell Park Beach.

Nathan believed such a run would be challenging but in turn showcase the truly wonderful features of the Helensburgh, Otford and Stanwell Park communities and while not the same event a semblance of the prior race with the same name. Proceeds to Motor Neurone Disease.
