The Sydney Running Festival is the highest profile legacy event following the 2000 Sydney Olympics. It incorporates four separate events: The Marathon, Half Marathon, Bridge Run and Family Fun Run.
The running route includes Art Gallery and Mrs Macquaries Road. Runners will finish at either the Opera House Forecourt or the Conservatorium on Macquarie St and make their way to baggage collection at the Parade Grounds within the Botanic Garden, and the Recovery Village in the Tarpeian area of the Domain, at Macquarie Street.
