Blackmores Sydney Running Festival – Event Update September 2020

Thanks for your patience whilst we have been working through how we can deliver a safe event to you in 2020.  We would also like to thank our sponsors, stakeholders and government for their continued support during this challenging time.

Given the ongoing health crisis and despite our optimism and best efforts, it is with great sadness that we announce that we have not been able to secure approval for the 2020 Blackmores Sydney Running Festival to take place this year on 8 November.

We are as disappointed as you to not be able to celebrate what would have been the 20th running of the event, but none the less, we’re excited to celebrate an even bigger and better 20th anniversary (and 20th running) event on 19 September 2021!

All existing 2020 registered participants will automatically be transferred to the 2021 date, no action is required. If you are unable to attend the event in 2021, please find more information below in the FAQ’s section.

Thank you for your support during this time and we cannot wait to see you again in 2021 to celebrate this amazing event with you!
