Fun Runs

We are in the midst of a Fun Run boom in Sydney. There is a massive range on offer!


The fun run season is upon us! Most weekends present at least one opportunity to go out and hit the pavement with hundreds or thousands of others. One of the big half marathons (The Sydney Morning Herald Half) has come and gone and the famous City to Surf at (2/3*21=) 14 kilometres is fast approaching. Participation in these big races is always memorable. On the downside, the cost of these races is becoming prohibitive and, if you are not careful, it can be hard to avoid getting tangled up with lots of other runners. Plenty of smaller fun runs serve as terrific antidotes to these blockbuster races.  They are often easily accessible with smaller crowds and costs. At most of these races, there will be a range of abilities meaning there will nearly always be someone to run alongside. A further advantage of these races is that they present a terrific way to explore new parts of Sydney/ NSW. Here is a collection of races to keep in mind:

Happy running!!
