A note from the event organisers:
Sydney Residents Urged to Plan Travel as Runners Prepare for the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival.
The Blackmores Sydney Running Festival is expecting 33,000 participants from over 66 countries to run, walk or jog in one of the stunning events which gives participants the unique opportunity for all runners to cross the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge traffic free and take in Sydney’s spectacular sights. It is a legacy of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
The Blackmores Sydney Marathon course for 2017 is a flat, fast and beautiful route. The marathon continues to hold the prestigious top honour of the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) Road Race Gold Label Status – recognising the event alongside the big city of marathons such as London, Boston and New York. It is also the only Australian running event that is broadcast live. The event has raised over $16,900,000 for local charities and will contribute over $11,000,000 to the local economy.
