IMPORTANT Note regarding participant conduct during RunNSW Virtual events

If you live outside the Sydney region, DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN RUNNING ANY OF THE THREE PHYSICAL COURSES PROVIDED. Instead, please participate by running/walking your own 4km or 5km route in your local area of residence.

Of course, with any virtual run that is undertaken – regardless of whether you are running on one of the pre-planned course, or you are running your own route – all measures that have been stated by Commonwealth and NSW Government, including limiting all outdoor activities to a maximum of two (2) people, and social distancing (1.5 metres apart from others at all times), MUST be adhered to by any participant in the RunNSW Virtual Series.

Any evidence of a participant not following the laws, rules, regulations and advice by the relevant government authorities will be disqualified from the RunNSW Virtual Series.

In a time of isolation, RunNSW – the recreational running events side of Athletics NSW – has identified the need to bring the running community of NSW together virtually. This view is being shared by many sporting organisations across the world, and we’re here to do our part.

The RunNSW Virtual Series is a three-part event series where you have the option of either running in three physical locations chosen by us, or, three virtual locations chosen by you. If you live in the Sydney area, you can choose to run the physical courses, but by no means are you obligated to run in any area/any course that you are unable to, or are unwilling to.

How to be eligible to complete the RunNSW Virtual Series

To complete the RunNSW Virtual Series, all you need to do is the following:

Complete 2 x 5km runs, and 1 x 4km run, between Friday, 17th April, and Friday, 8th May (three-week period), and upload all three results to the relevant Active Results platform.

Please view the following tabs – Map Tab/Details Tab/Register Tab/Results Tab – for more information about the series

Where are the physical courses located?

The three physical courses we’ve mapped out and created course videos for, are the following:

Georges River (4.00km course, 27 metres elevation gain) – “South” Region
View detailed Strava Map here – https://www.strava.com/routes/25422261

A 2km out-and-back course along the beautiful Georges River, taking in lovely views of the river for almost the entire run. With the course being quite flat, it’s a great chance to stretch your legs and go for a fast 4k or relax and go at your own speed whilst taking in the waterfront spectacle.

La Perouse (5.00km course – 71 metres elevation gain) – “East” Region
View detailed Strava Map here – https://www.strava.com/routes/25178558

More stunning water views welcome you in La Perouse, as well as approximately 1km “off-road” (featuring 700 metres of the light Guriwal Bush Tucker Trail) in this slightly more challenging 5km course. With a 2.5km turnaround mark – a route which many locals may remember from the Kamay Parkrun – this course is designed to be the most testing of the three, with a uphill 400 metre finish to the first of the Parkrun-distance courses.

Sydney Olympic Park (5.00km course, 28 metres elevation gain) – “West” Region
View detailed Strava Map here – https://www.strava.com/routes/25421732

The home of the Sydney 2000 Olympics, and the RunNSW Sydney 10 and Sydney Half events, the historic Sydney Olympic Park hosts our third and final course for the series, with another Parkrun-distance 5k for you to complete. After the initial short climb up Krones Hills, you’ll switchback your way down to the footpath, continuing around the Bay Marker, before doubling back and making your way around The Pyramid, finishing back at the foot Haslams Pier. If you’re looking to get your 5k fix on a flat course (the hill at the start will prevent you from going out too hard!), this will be a great one to target. And who knows, you might set a 5K PB to go along with your Sydney 10 and Sydney Half PB’s in the past!

If you live outside the Sydney region, DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN RUNNING ANY OF THE THREE PHYSICAL COURSES PROVIDED. Instead, please participate by running/walking your own 4km or 5km route in your local area of residence.

How to register for the RunNSW Virtual Series

As mentioned in the “How to be eligible to complete RunNSW Virtual Series” section on page 1, there are a variety of “series pathways” you can take when registering for the RunNSW Virtual Series, based on your wants/needs/circumstances. Runners who live in Sydney may choose to run all three physical courses, whereas runners who live outside Sydney (e.g. Wagga, Dubbo, Tamworth) will run their own three routes – both options are totally fine in order to complete the RunNSW Virtual Series!

Other runners, for instance, may want to run one of the courses, but would rather not want to complete the other two courses. That’s also totally fine! All of the above options will allow you to be eligible to complete the series.

Once you’ve decided which two 5km runs, and which one 4km run you’d like to do over the three-week period, it’s time to register!

Jump onto the RunNSW Virtual Series event page and select the events you’d like to register for via the homepage.

Once you’ve selected the Virtual course you’d like to run (either one we’ve mapped out, or your own), navigate through the relevant prompts via the Active Registration system.

If you’re having trouble registering someone under the age of 18 years old, please click here.

Once you’re registered for the run, you’ll receive a “Registration Confirmation” email in your inbox, with your “Registration ID” located under a QR Code on the top right of the email. This ID number is critical as this will allow you to unlock the results page that allows you to enter your time for each run. So make sure you’re able to access this email once you’ve completed your run for that event!

How to submit your result

Congratulations! You’ve finished your run for the event you’ve registered for, and you’re now ready to tell us how you went!

You’ll need to navigate to the Active Results Website, via the following links here:

Sydney Olympic Park 5km Virtual Run
https://resultscui.active.com/events/RunNSWVirtualSeries1

La Perouse 5k Virtual Run
https://resultscui.active.com/events/RunNSWVirtualSeriesLaPerouse5k

Georges River 4k Virtual Run
https://resultscui.active.com/events/RunNSWVirtualSeriesGeorgesRiver4kevent

5k Virtual Run #1

5k Virtual Run #2
https://resultscui.active.com/events/RunNSWVirtualSeries5kVirtualRun2

4k Virtual Run
https://resultscui.active.com/events/RunNSWVirtualSeries4kVirtualRun

Let’s say, for instance, you’ve just finished the La Perouse 5k Virtual Run – and you want to submit your result. As mentioned on the previous page, you’ll enter your Registration ID to allow you to access the results page:

After clicking “Go”, you’ll be navigated to the results page, where you’ll do two things:

  • Enter your time .
    Please enter in the format of Hours (hh) : Minutes (mm) : Seconds

E.g. If you took 25 minutes and 0 seconds, enter as 00 : 25 : 00, as pictured below

  • Attach the evidence of your run
    Please attached a file that shows us the route you took (if completing one of the physical courses), how far you ran & the time you took to do it

Preferably, this is a screenshot of your run via the Strava app or Strava website, but we’re happy to have ANY GPS data that indicates where/how far/how long your ran/walked for


Once you’ve successfully submitted your time and GPS file, you’ll see the following window – and that’s it – you’re all done! We’ll make sure that the details you provided check out and will be progressively publishing the results as the events continue!

What happens after I’ve submitted all three runs & at the conclusion of the event?

Once you’ve completed all three runs, you will receive a few things from us in the form of a personalised “Congratulations” email

– Digital certificate of completion

  • Digital RunNSW Virtual Series finisher’s medal
  • Digital RunNSW Virtual Series certificate of completion
  • List of results from your three runs

We’ll also send out a survey to you – which will only take a few minutes to complete – as your feedback will help shape future RunNSW Virtual events that we deliver, making them event better next time!

Thanks for reading through this document, and happy (safe) virtual running!

From the team at RunNSW,

Happy #socialdistancerunning
