Important Notice to Athletics NSW Members: To be eligible for Athletics NSW medals members MUST wear their club uniform.

Flat, fast course with a finish in the Athletics Centre

All races will start on the famous Dawn Fraser Avenue adjacent to Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre (SOPAC) and on approach to the finish, runners will exit Dawn Fraser Avenue to the north of SOPAC, run along the access lane between SOPAC and the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre and then enter the Athletics Centre via the ‘marathon’ tunnel and complete the final 350m on the track.

This will be a rare opportunity to finish a road race inside an international athletics stadium which will make for a great spectator event.

What happens at the Start?

The start line will be outside SOPAC on Dawn Fraser Ave for all races. Runners need to report to the start line 10 minutes before their race. There will be NO SEEDING groups on the start line so we ask that all runners use common sense to SELF SEED themselves. This means faster runners start at the front, moderate runners in the middle and slower runners/walkers at the back. Any prams should also start at the back.

Where are the toilets?

There are three toilet stops along the course:
– Cathy Freeman park at the 500m/4.5km mark of each loop
– The Brick Pit located at the far turn around point. (2.3km / 7.3km)
– Adjacent to the start line on the ANZ stadium side of Dawn Fraser Ave (0km)

What happens at the Finish Line?

The finish line will be the finish line of the athletics track inside SOPAC. Runners will enter via the marathon tunnel at the southern end of the ground and complete 350m of the track. A recovery area will be set up after the finish line for runners to recovery with water and electrolyte and remove their timing chips. After exiting the recovery zone runners can meet their friends and family up in the grandstand OR out on the grass infield.

Where can I warm up?

The event precinct with be the Sydney Olympic Park Athletics Centre. Runners, friends and family are encouraged to use the stands and outfield of the track as their ‘home base’.

Can my club set up a tent?

Yes! Clubs are invited to set up their club tents between the home straight and the grandstand of SOPAC. Please email benstlawrence@nswathletics.org.au to book a position for your tent. Also note that pegs/stakes cannot be used to hold tents to the ground.

Yes. A secure baggage area will be located in VIP room 2 on the concourse of the Athletics Centre.  Runners who leave their bags inside the baggage area will write their name and bib number on the front and leave their bag with an attendant.
