The Sydney Marathon is part of a running festival which includes a choice of distances. Starting from 7am with the marathon, followed by a half marathon, 10k & 3.5k fun run. A world class event, it has consistently achieved IAAF Road Race Gold Label status and is run on a spectacular course showing off the iconic sights of Sydney.
