Sydney Marathon Spectator Live Sites

1. Pyrmont Coffee Club

We’re going to have your coffees ready to go at the Pyrmont Coffee Club – our first of four spectator live sites at the Sydney Marathon. Plus we’ll have the breakfast trucks at your service with all your favourite morning bites, because satisfied spectators are loud spectators.

And what’s the only thing better than coffee? FREE coffee! And the first 100 legendary spectators who will be the first to cheer on our marathoners for the day will be getting rewarded for their services. As the saying goes – the early bird gets the urn!

The most beautiful city in the world is no more beautiful than in The Rocks, and with easy access between our second live site & the finish line, it’s a perfect place to set up for the runners passing the 15km mark in the marathon, and working into their race.

And yes – the 100 spectators to the Sydney Spirit site also get free coffee! This is also the first site on course that will have our resident DJ’s spinning tracks and breaking out the classics, as well an engaging MC ready with loads of giveaways for our fantastic crowd!

We’re also going to have lots of the local businesses around the area come on board and making sure our spectators get some great deals on delicious food & beverages on Marathon morning, and we hope you get loud in the echoing streets and alleyways of the historic part of the race.

Driver Ave will be coming alive – running parallel to the Sydney Football Stadium and Sydney Cricket Ground – with hundreds of people expected to be getting loud for their running mates as they pass the halfway mark and come back after another 11.5km on the other side of the road.

And if you’re looking for some where to watch with the young family and the kids – this is also the place for you! Picture this: as you friends navigate the course, a DJ will be there to keep your energy soaring. Plus, don’t miss the opportunity to catch the heart-pounding action on a massive screen broadcasting live coverage of the Marathon, transitioning to a live feed of the exhilarating finish line moments. Our MC will be armed with an array of giveaways, including official event clappers, ASICS vouchers, sports bottles, and Scholl Foot Pamper Packs. 

And that’s not all – indulge your taste buds with a delectable breakfast from our mobile food truck, and if you’re among the first 100 attendees, enjoy a free coffee on us. There’s also a designated area where you can unleash your creativity, crafting personalised signs to cheer on your friends and fellow runners, injecting an extra dose of motivation into the event. 

For the young ones, excitement awaits with the appearance of Paw Patrol’s Everest character, available for delightful photo sessions. Our dedicated kids’ activation area features face painting, a Nickelodeon Kids Colouring activity zone, and engaging roving kids’ entertainment. Get ready to groove with  kids’ dance-off competitions that promise endless fun. Plus, there’s a unique chance to witness Marathon Athletes at multiple points, catching their strides at both the Tramway Oval Bus Turn-around and on Driver Ave in both directions.
