The 3RUN Family Jam is an annual jam organised by the 3RUN community[1] and team[2]. It is notable for its turnout, usually in the hundreds, with many people travelling from abroad just to join in with the event. The event also has a reputation for bringing together big names and new or rare tricks


[edit] 2006

This was the first family jam and took place on August 5, 2006[3], with quite a few memorable tricks being pulled off by Daniel Ilabaca[3]. Festival pier was already occupied by ravers[4] so the sand part of the jam had to move to the steps further down Southbank which had slopes instead of steps.

The third 3RUN Family Jam took place on August 9th 2008[6], and was unfortunately disrupted by heavy rain. The jam mainly consisted of a large session at Festival Pier, where some new tricks were pulled off including one of the first double gainer and full in back out attempts, before groups split up and headed to other undercover sections in the area.
