The Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon presented by Qantas Assure has cemented itself as Australia’s largest and most iconic Half Marathon. Now in its 27th year, the course takes in the best of Sydney city’s iconic landscape, including views of the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge, The Rocks and Pyrmont Peninsula.
Put your mental and physical limits to the ultimate test as you pound the pavement with thousands of runners all chasing pursuit of the 21.1km on May 20.
If a half marathon isn’t your thing, totally fine. In 2013 the relay element was introduced extending participation to a wider market and for the first time this year runners can split the relay evenly and compete against their running buddy. Also, the inspirational 2.5km sprint race will be back again for elite wheelchair athletes.
And if all that is not enough, this year they will even pamper you! Be treated like Half Marathon royalty with your very own Platinum Pass. Whether you want to reward and pamper yourself or you just want to enjoy some race day perks. Get your own personalised race bib (including race bib postage), exclusive access to the VIP area and Race brunch, massage services & much more. Limited passes available.
