Blackmores Sydney Running Festival
The Blackmores Sydney Running Festival is back, and this year it's celebrating its 20th anniversary. As ever, participants will get the rare opportunity to race (or saunter) across a traffic-free Sydney Harbour Bridge.
There are four events, giving punters of all ages and skill levels the chance to join in: the Family Fun Run (3.5 kilometres); Bridge Run (10 kilometres); Half Marathon (21 kilometres); and the Sydney Marathon (42.2 kilometres). The Marathon, Half Marathon and Bridge Run all end at the Opera House, while the Family Run ends at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
Wind down afterwards at the recovery village, with food outlets and live entertainment. And if you raise $500 or more for one of the race's official charities, your race fee ($116–$175) will be waived.
Registrations are now open. More information here.
