ONLINE entries are now open for Tuesday's HQB Australia Day Fun Run.

Coffs Harbour Surf Life Saving Club hosts the annual adventure, with three races starting and finishing in front of the clubhouse.

Surf club spokesman Paul Kelly said runners were certain to enjoy their early morning run along Park Beach before a scenic suburban tour of Coffs Jetty.

"Kids, families, dedicated athletes, fun runners and business house teams are always welcome to participate," he said.

"Get a four-person workplace team together and then come out to enjoy a great start to our national holiday."

To enter online go to www.coffsharbourslsc.asn.au and then follow the guides. Online entries are preferred to speed up registrations.

However, registrations will still be taken on race morning from 6.30am.

The 2km run begins at 7.15am with the 5km and 10km runners heading off at 8am. The presentations will follow around one hour later.
