Blackmores Sydney Running Festival
From 6am, Sunday 18 September
Alfred Street South, Milsons Point
Dust off your runners for the marathon’s 20th anniversary – there’s a route for everyone.
The Blackmores Sydney Running Festival is the sole remaining participant legacy of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. It started in 2001 when the NSW Government approved the continuation of a marathon in Sydney to promote fitness and health for the NSW community and to position Sydney as an international tourist destination. Twenty years on and the Blackmores Sydney Marathon and Running Festival is one of the most spectacular running events and marathons in the world.
It is with great excitement that that the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival will return on 18 September 2022. They are excited to welcome you back to the streets and sights of Sydney as we come together to celebrate the event's 20th running.
The Blackmores Sydney Marathon is also a candidate race for the Abbott World Marathon Majors (AbbottWMM).
The Blackmores Sydney Running Festival has 4 distances, suitable for any fitness level;
- Marathon (42.2km)
- Half Marathon (21.1km)
