If you are looking for a scenic route and cool weather to race in, the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival is the perfect place for you. The Blackmores Sydney Running Festival is located in Sydney, Australia and takes place on Sunday, 18 September 2016. Known as one of the most scenic and spectacular courses in Australia, the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival is becoming more popular with runners all over the world.
The Blackmores Sydney Running Festival Experience
The Sydney Running Festival (SRF) is an IAAF Gold Label road race, where you will run along some parts of the original Sydney 2000 Olympic Games marathon route. Its flat course makes this marathon a definite potential Boston Qualifying race! What’s more, you get to explore Sydney as a runner and experience the city as a tourist while you are running the race! Besides its scenic course and pleasant weather, you can also immerse yourself in the amazing atmosphere and witness the camaraderie among runners and volunteers.
The atmosphere is great, the route is the most scenic available and the volunteers are all extremely friendly and helpful. I ran the half marathon last year and the 9km with a friend this year and it ranks as my favourite event on the running calendar. My highlight was seeing a couple of guys on the bridge who had started in wheelchairs but were walking over the bridge with help from their carers/friends. It was so touching and inspiring and was the definite highlight of the day. – Kylie Cook, a SRF participant
One of the World’s Most Scenic Marathon Courses
The entire race route takes place in the most spectacular streets, parks and landmarks in the city. At the SRF, you can get exceptional harbour views as you run across the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The bridge offers views of the majestic Sydney Opera House, and looks over the sea and the bay. To add to that, September is the perfect time to run and break personal bests because of the cool weather!
A Race For Everyone
The Blackmores Sydney Running Festival consists of four exciting events — Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 9k and 4k fun runs, all crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge with the two longest distances finishing at the iconic Sydney Opera House and the two fun runs at Sydney’s prestigious Conservatorium of Music. The route has been revised to include flatter terrains to enhance the running experience for both the serious marathoners and casual runners. With the pleasant Spring climate, this means a flatter, faster route, and possibly a PB for everyone!
