Rejoice, fitness fiends: the multi-course running event returns
The annual Sydney Running Festival has distances friendly to all types – from 4km to over 40km in races known as the Sydney Marathon (yikes!), the Half Marathon (OK...), the Bridge Run (noice) and the Family Fun Run (count us in).
As ever, the festival offers some of the most scenic fun runs, with the marathon and half-marathon finishing at the Opera House and the easier runs concluding at the Royal Botanic Gardens.
So start training, and start getting your sponsors ready: participants choose a fundraising target for the charity of their choice and hop-step it to meet it.
