BRATs has a colourful history and strong ties with Bondi. An informal group of runners used to head out from the Bondi Diggers Club three times a week throughout the early seventies. These runners were among competitors in the first City to Surf in 1971.
By the late seventies, the group had grown considerably to include a number of regular and competitive racers. This group of runners was only officially formed as the Bondi Diggers Road Runners Club in 1985. The Club severed formal ties with the Diggers in 1988, establishing itself as The Bondi Running and Triathlon (B.R.A.T.) Club Inc. after welcoming a band of triathletes into the club.
Since then, BRATs have gone on to produce two Olympians, Ironman champions and world age champions, as well as introducing hundreds of others to the sport.
Once you become a member of the BRAT Club you have direct access to a range of training sessions FREE OF CHARGE.
