About the Pub2Pub Charity Fun Run & Festival
The Pub2Pub Charity Fun Run and Festival is organised by Rotary Club of Brookvale. Over its 26 year history, the event has raised literally millions of dollars for worthy local charities on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Money raised has been donated to organisations including Life Education Australia, Northern Beaches Interchange (NBI), Surf Life Saving Northern Beaches, Without A Ribbon, Bear Cottage, Cerebral Palsey Alliance and Sunnyfield.
The event has three course options, catering for everyone from serious runners to families – 13km from Dee Why Beach to Newport Beach; 6km from Warriewood to Newport Beach; and 3km from Mona Vale to Newport Beach. This is undoubtedly Sydney’s most scenic fun run, taking in many of the spectacularly beautiful Northern Beaches. A huge Family Festival is held at the Newport Beach finish line with live music, a licensed bar area, international food options and plenty of fun rides and games for the kids.

About Rotary Club of Brookvale
Rotary Club of Brookvale is a group of local people from all walks of life, all with a common goal – service through fellowship. It’s a great way to meet fellow professionals and make new friends. Rotary Club of Brookvale always welcomes new members.
The Club’s major annual fundraising activity is the Pub2Pub Charity Fun Run & Festival – now in it’s 26th year. The Pub2Pub is a great community building exercise – the largest community and fundraising event on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
Our aim is for 100% of all registration fees to go back to local charities and service organisations. We are blessed with some generous sponsors who cover the necessary overheads involved with such a large event.
Get involved with Rotary
Feel like it’s time to give something back to your community and those less fortunate? Want to meet like-minded business people? Join Rotary of Brookvale. We meet for lunch each Thursday, except in the last week of the month when we meet on Wednesdays at 6:30pm. While members are encouraged to attend meetings on a regular basis, we do recognise that everyone has commitments other than Rotary and therefore do not insist on attendance at every meeting. To find out more about our Club and how you can become involved, please contact us.
More than just financial support
Rotary’s worldwide credentials show that we get things done… and not just through donations. One good example is a little girl in New Guinea who desperately needed an operation to repair a hole in her heart. Rotary Club of Brookvale organised flights, surgeons and accommodation, which resulted in saving this young girl’s life. Similarly, we’ve twice sent a team across to Koroipita Village in Fiji to help significantly improve life of many homeless Fijians. Rotary International has been entrusted with donations of close to half a billion dollars from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to help eradicate Polio worldwide.
