What is the Bulimba Burn?

It’s probably the funnest and steepest fun run in the Southern Hemisphere (Note – we said ‘probably’ and we haven’t bothered to look it up). Starting at the Oxford Street roundabout, the Burn takes you up the Oxford Street hill adjacent to Bulimba State School, around the corner and all the way up to the school gates at the top. The course is exactly 333 meters – that’s halfway to 666 metres. The Bulimba Burn is halfway to hell!

The Pyjama Burn, supporting The Pyjama Foundation

The flagship event is The Pyjama Burn – organised by the Bulimba State School Student Council. Pyjama Month raising funds for The Pyjama Foundation which assists kids in foster care in Queensland. We’re teaming up with the Pyjama Foundation to raise some cash.


Check out The Pyjama Foundation here.

The Pyjama Burn will set a new (unofficial) world record for ‘the most people running up Oxford Street, Bulimba wearing their jim-jams’. To become an unofficial world record breaker, simply bring along your pyjamas, slip them on at the start line and run up the hill. All finishers will receive a certificate congratulating them on becoming (unofficial) record holders. 

How many races are there in the Bulimba Burn?

Lots and lots and lots. Basically, there’s something for everyone at the Bulimba Burn. There’ll be around 15 different ‘Burns’ between 8:30am and 10:30am. You can enter one Burn or as many Burns as your legs can handle.

When and where is the Bulimba Burn? 

It will be held on Sunday 24 July 2022 from 8am til 11am at the Bulimba State School Bottom Oval on Riding Road, Bulimba.

Where do the funds raised at the Burn go?

The funds raised go to the Bulimba State School P&C.

The gold coin donation for The Pyjama Burn will go to The Pyjama Foundation to assist kids in foster care.
