Australia’s First Inflatable Baby Suit Race Comes To The Balmoral Burn!


Get ready to ‘Run Baby Run’ at Australia’s first inflatable baby suit race – only at this year’s Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn on Sunday, 26 May 2024.

The ‘Run Baby Run’ race was inspired by Tim Akers who was a solitary trailblazing inflatable baby at last year’s event.  Tim was motivated to take on Sydney’s steepest hill run by his now two-year- old son Archie who was born three months early at only 900 grams and spent 12 weeks in Royal Prince Alfred Hospital using equipment donated by the Humpty Dumpty Foundation.   

“Whilst running up a steep hill is not particularly hard (with or without an inflatable baby suit), doing what the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and the Humpty Dumpty Foundation team did for Archie truly is and they need more funding to keep doing this for thousands of Archie’s being born across Australia each year.  Our hope is the sight of a gaggle of over-sized babies running up this hill will raise more attention for this already incredible charity,” said Tim Akers.

Register now to be a part of Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn history and join Tim in an inflatable baby suit to feel the burn in the ‘Run Baby Run’ race category.  Scheduled for 10am on race day entry in the ‘Run Baby Run’ race category costs $30 per person and includes your very own inflatable baby suit.

Uniting the community for one of Australia’s premier outdoor charity events, the Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn is a unique race that challenges participants and corporations to raise money for vital medical equipment for sick kids in hospital.  The annual event brings together participants – with a passion to feel the Burn – to take on the 420 metre racecourse of Sydney’s steepest hill run up Awaba Street in Mosman.

The Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn has raised more than $32.2 million to date and was created by Wallaby great and Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn Ambassador, Phil Kearns AM, 22 years ago.

From kids to families, schools, community groups, hospitals and corporate relays, there are plenty of ways to participate.  With something for everyone and all fitness levels, this year’s Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn has more than 20 different race categories.  From the ever colourful Celebration Run, Pet & Owner, Humpty’s Run to spectator favourites including the Senior Schools Head of the Hill and Corporate Relays, the race day will include a new Telco industry race category which will see representatives from the telecommunications sector go head to head in a 4 x 105m relay.

The Humpty Dumpty Foundation provides essential, and often lifesaving, medical equipment, and healthcare initiatives to around 500 hospitals and health services right across Australia.

With the help of passionate people who support Humpty’s work to ensure children have access to the healthcare they need, no matter where they live – we can make this year’s Burn bigger and better than ever.
