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?

Outside of a small ELITE ATHLETE start area (top 15 male and female athletes from 2018 Sydney10 only), there will be NO OTHER SEEDING groups on the start line so we ask that all runners use common sense to SELF SEED themselves.

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’.
