Come 17 September 2017, the Blackmores Sydney Marathon and Sydney Running Festival will be taking place. Join in the fun and enjoy one of Australia’s most scenic marathon routes.
Taking place on one of the most spectacular running courses in the world, the Blackmores Sydney Marathon takes in all of the iconic Sydney landmarks and at the same time, provides runners with the unique chance to run across the Sydney Harbour Bridge without any worries about traffic.
Blackmores Sydney Marathon started in 2001
The sole remaining participant legacy of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, the Blackmores Sydney Marathon started in 2001 when the New South Wales Government approved the continuation of a Marathon in Sydney – with the aim of promoting fitness and health for New South Wales residents and at the same time, to position Sydney as an international tourist destination.
Today, the Sydney Marathon – the only Australian running festival that is broadcast live – now boasts over 32,000 runners from over 66 countries each year.
At the same time, the race is a hugely successful fund-raising event, supporting several Australian charities. In 2015 alone, the event raised over AUD $1,737,647 for charitable organisations. Since its inception, the Blackmores Sydney Marathon has raised more than $15.5 million Australian dollars.
