Run events and Marathon in Australia (Part 2)

City to Surf, New South Wales 

Immerse yourself in the beautifully breathtaking sights of Sydney at this 14km run, extending from Hyde Park to the famous Bondi Beach in August. You’re heading through the harbor suburbs of Double and Rose Bay and you’re going to speed up to a spot named ‘Heartbreak Hill’ before going down the Pacific Ocean and finishing the course. 

Fun and fundraising are almost as critical priorities as the City-to-Surf run, drawing more than 75,000 attendees and cheering thousands of spectators.

Tighten your shoelaces and conquer the challenge

Or enter a joyful cheerleader squad standing on the pavement and outside the cafes and bars around the race track.

Sydney Race Festival in New South Wales 

There are competition routes ideal for all-level competitors at the Sydney Race Festival in September. But all of them pass through the beautiful Sydney landscapes. Try your hand at the marathon, ride from Milsons Point, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, and the Sydney CBD to Centennial Park. 

Or begin with a semi-marathon, finishing at the Royal Botanic Gardens next to the harbour. Those that want more fun and fewer should sign up for the 9km Bridge Run or the 4km Family Run. Donate funds to charitable organisations or use the race as a convincing introduction to Sydney. Many hotels offer a full package of accommodation, meaning you can rest, dress up and explore the area in your spare time.

Marathon of Melbourne, Victoria 

Choose the competition you want to fly, jog or compete in the Melbourne Marathon, passing through the city in October. The km complete route begins on Batman Road near the Yarra River and stretches. As far as St Kilda Esplanade, before heading back to the city to Melbourne Cricket Ground. Experience this trip, or try your luck at the half-marathon. 

There are also 10km and 5.7km runs, a km walk and a 2.5km children’s sprint, held in and around Melbourne’s lush botanical gardens. This is also a significant incentive to visit Melbourne, which is considered to be home to many excellent shopping and food centres, special sporting activities, a labyrinth of miniature gothic paths and cultural landmarks such as Federation Square.
