On the 1st February, Sydney sprints into action…literally. The Summer Fun Run takes the city by storm with thousands of joggers and sprinters on the 6.74km run. They race by Dee Why and Manly Bay and this year, they’ve added a new 10km course. This will spin runners around the Northern Beaches and a sure bet to burn off those extra Christmas calories that just didn’t melt away this month.
The beauty of the run is that it’s geared towards expert runners, joggers and the few that would rather walk the course, in a more relaxed fashion.
If you’re looking to be a budding 2014 philanthroper, there are over 800 charities you can raise funds for. Have friends and family donate towards your cause and when you reach the finishing line, everyone’s a winner.
Teams have raised over $6500 and individuals around $2500 so everyone really get into the fundraising and galloping race for the 1st of next month.
The views are incredible and there are a multitude of major cheering points to keep the runners adrenaline at top notch. These include Queenscliff Beach, South Curl Curl and Manly Life Saving Club to clap at the finish line and pat backs with runners (located at Wentworth Street).
So if you're visiting and looking for an affordable Sydney hotel, naturally Cremorne Point’s low rates are at the ready. Only a short ferry ride to the Harbour and an 18 minute drive to Manly Bay, you’re already near the action.
On your marks, get set, and go!
