Beachside Dash

Ready, set, let’s Run for Research: the first ever ‘Virtual’ Beachside Dash is coming to your suburb in 2020

The 2019 Beachside Dash was a huge success raising over $74,000 for medical research. Read more about 2019 Dash and view the gallery at

The Dash is such a big part of how we connect with our community and your safety and healthcare is of the utmost importance to us.

With this in mind, we have made the decision (drum roll please) to make the 2020 Beachside Dash Virtual!

Now in its 13th year, the Beachside Dash is so much more than just a fun run, it is a community event that raises funds for medical research in St George and Sutherland Hospitals, and because the research we fund is conducted in your local hospitals, results are translated to patient treatment, providing the most up-to-date care for you, your families and our local community.

This year, wherever you are, you can #RunforResearch and help raise funds for medical research.

  • When: From 5am on 27th November to 10pm on 29th November 2020
  • Where: You choose! It can be at the local park, in your neighbourhood, on the footpath, trail or your favourite beach.
  • What distances: 2km, 5km, 10km and 21.5km
  • Who: Anyone can #RunforResearch! You can do this event as an individual or get some friends and family together – set yourself a challenge and dress up!

Tickets: Online entries will open soon!


$20 per single registration
$15 per registration when booking as a group of two or more.

All participants will receive a Virtual Beachside Dash welcome pack including:

  • Beachside Dash race bib
  • Beachside Dash bling (race medal for those post-race selfies)
  • #RunforResearch cheer stix
  • Free access to Virtual Beachside Dash timing APP


  • Access to training tips from ambassadors
  • Video messages and content from event sponsors
  • Social media photo competitions
  • Fundraising prizes
  • Weekly registration giveaway prizes (commencing Friday 25th September)

There are prizes available for each virtual race event. Stay tuned for more details and how to participate.


Fundraise and help support medical research in St George and Sutherland hospitals.

You can choose to Beachside Dash Research Champion by fundraising beyond your registration fee by setting up an online fundraising page and asking your friends, family and networks to donate to your page.

We really couldn’t do what we do without the help of dedicated fundraisers like you – every bit of effort counts and any amount you raise is so appreciated.

All funds raised will help SSMRF continue to support medical research in St George and Sutherland hospitals.
