DC Batman Run Experience
Celebrate Batman's 80th anniversary by donning a cape and going for a run around Brisbane.
Do bats haunt your dreams? Is your mother called Martha? Do you have a secret identity? Maybe you've just always wanted to don a cape and run around Brisbane, starting — where else? — at the very Gotham-looking State Law Building.
It's not the most expected way to mark Batman's 80th anniversary, however all of the above is on the agenda at the DC Batman Run Experience. With the iconic character becoming an octogenarian this year, this is your bat-loving chance to celebrate and get active all at once.
Yes, it's exactly what it sounds like. The five-kilometre race will start at George Street, send costumed participants jogging through the streets, and then end with an after-party at the Maritime Museum at South Park. Entry costs $59 per person, which includes a limited-edition shirt, a Batman medal if you finish, and a chance to scope out the Batmobile. No, you can hop in it and speed your way through the track.
The race kicks off at 5pm, with the party getting into gear from 8pm — with themed food with names such as 'Batwings', 'Holy Hamburgers Batman' and 'The Pork Belly Knight Bao' available to purchase.
