Run For Free

Raise $500* and receive the FULL cost of your ticket back in your bank account. It typically takes 7 donations to raise $500, so it’s well within reach.

To be eligible you must reach your target before midnight on event day, and you must apply for the rebate no later than event day (Sunday 15 September 2024).

If you do not claim your rebate by that date the cost of your ticket will be retained by the charity you have chosen to fundraise for.

Rebates will be issued starting the first week of October.


As an added bonus, you will receive incentives along the way for all your efforts, check them out…

  • FREE merchandise from your chosen charity*
  • Raise $500** or more and receive the full cost of your entry ticket back in your bank account!
  • We have awesome prizes up for grabs, plus more incentives to make it easy to raise money.

*Merchandise will vary for each organisation.

**Must fundraise $500 – or more – as an Individual (not a Team), using an Official Sydney Marathon fundraising page.
