Second Sunday in August

This famous 14 kilometre walk, or run if you’re up for it, starts from Hyde Park and ends at Sydney’s iconic Bondi Beach. Join in for a high energy, feel good experience, to help raise funds for over 900 charities. So lace up your shoes and get ready for a fun day out.

The thrilling race begins at Hyde Park, in the heart of Sydney, at the crossing of Park and College Street. Initiating on the slope of William Street, the course soon heads uphill towards the Kings Cross tunnel. After a trip up New South Head Road, runners tackle “Heartbreak Hill” – the picturesque half-way point – before heading onto Old South Head road and, and then Military Road. The race heads downhill once more and finally approaches the finish line at Queen Elizabeth Drive, across the stunning and iconic Bondi Beach.
