Blackmores Sydney Running Festival – Event Update, May 2020

As we all know, COVID-19 has changed all of our lives, right across the world. Whilst this has been devastating, the response by Governments and communities has been outstanding, particularly in Australia and New Zealand. Obviously as organisers of this great event, we’ve been monitoring the situation and have been in close contact with the NSW Government on how COVID-19 may impact the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival. At the moment, we are still working towards our scheduled date of Sunday 20 September 2020. This year we celebrate our 20th event, and the 20th Anniversary of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games from which this event was founded as a legacy for the people.

We will continue to work closely with the NSW Government and Agencies over the coming months and if there is a need to change this date, we do have backup dates already planned. Though for now we keep on planning for September, with various options being considered as to how we do this under COVID-19 considerations. Your health, the health of our volunteers and workforce are of primary importance, so rest assured we will implement a safe, successful and fun event for you.

During this time, we do know large parts of the community have been focusing on their health and in particular people taking up running to keep fit and mentally healthy. So we hope to welcome some new faces to the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival event this year, which is very exciting.

So be safe, stay fit and healthy and we look forward to seeing your smiling faces at the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival, the most spectacular running event in Australia.
