Your Experience

The Sydney Marathon is part of a running festival which includes a choice of distances. Starting from 6am with the half marathon, followed by the 10K, marathon and 3.5k fun run it has a race for everyone. A very generous 7 hour time limit allows all runners to participate and enjoy the marathon route. A world class event, it has consistently achieved IAAF Road Race Gold Label status and is an Abbott World Marathon Majors candidate race.

Sydney is Australia’s largest and most famous city. You can expect to experience the fascinating vibey harbour, white sandy beaches of Bondi Beach, the unique Sydney Opera House with its defined shape, like billowing white sails, and the impressive steel arch of the Harbour Bridge. As with any major city you can discover so much more to see and do. This beautiful cosmopolitan city is a celebration of cultural diversity and heritage, and has a passion for arts and sports.

A trip to Australia would not be complete without experiences such as Sydney Bridge Climb, Blue Mountains Hike and a visit to the Great Barrier Reef to explore and relax after your race. All optional and available with us.
