Last chance to enter Rebel Run Sydney presented by The Sun-Herald!

Last chance to enter Rebel Run Sydney presented by The Sun-Herald!

With less than five days to go until Sydney’s newest running festival, Rebel Run Sydney presented by The Sun-Herald, runners of all levels have one last chance to register for the family-friendly event which takes place this Sunday, October 27 at Sydney Olympic Park.

This year, around 8,000 entrants are expected to take part, with a field of strong elite entrants, runners, walkers, pram pushers and families lined up to take on the Essential Kids 3km, 10km and new 21km half marathon course.

“There’s a great buzz about this year’s event with lots of competitive runners, families, work groups, parents and wheelchair entrants all getting involved for a really fun morning out,” said Rebecca Wilmer, Race Director.

“We have a lot going on, with the new half marathon course attracting many elites and a number of post-event family festivities offering Sydney families a fun and active day out with the little ones.”

Essential Kids* – the sister site to Essential Baby, Australia’s largest online parenting network – will host both the 3km family run and a free BYO family picnic and BBQ that all Sydney families are invited to attend.

The picnic will include an animal petting zoo presented by Taronga Zoo, a special kids training session with players from the Waratahs and Canterbury Bulldogs, face painting, music and entertainment, a jumping castle, and other fun outdoor games.

Run Sydney is the new name for the much-loved Run4Fun annual event which each year looks to raise money for hundreds of charities across Australia. This year the fundraising target has been set at $100,000, to benefit organisations such as beyondblue, the event’s 2013 charity partner.

Attracting entrants from across the country with varying fitness levels, the final stretch into the finish line will evoke memories of the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Participants will experience the spectacular journey through the ‘tunnel of champions’ on to the turf of ANZ Stadium with a 100-metre finish straight.
