History of the Cohuna Bridge to Bridge

What began as a bet between a few locals in the 1980s grew to include running, cycling, paddling and swimming events. Until 2018, the Cohuna Bridge to Bridge was run by the Cohuna Lions Club which, following the 25th annual event, decided it was time to pass it on. A group of enthusiastic community members took on the challenge and changed the format to include trail runs and a short children’s run, and the water events were dropped. The 2019-2021 events were organised under the umbrella of the Cohuna and District Progress Association. From the 2022 event, the Bridge to Bridge Committee is auspiced by Cohuna Neighbourhood House Inc.
