For slower runners, joggers or walkers it is important to be in the correct starting group. There are three groups in each race all seeded according to expected finish time. Your time will not be affected in any way as the timing chip will only record your time from when you cross the start mats to the finish line mats. This will allow you to enjoy the event at your own pace and provide you with the best possible end result. 


All prams and wheelchairs must only be in the final start group of the Blackmores Bridge Run (C Group).

Event Expo & race bib collection

The ASICS Event Expo will be held in Lower Town Hall, George Street, Sydney from 17 - 19 September 2020.  All participants are required to attend the ASICS Event Expo to collect their race bib.

Event Expo & Clothing Transport

All entrants are urged to utilise the Baggage Drop at the Expo and will be provided with a clothing bag sticker (found within the race bib) which is a replication of your race bib.

Dropping your bag at the Expo will guarantee availability of your bag on completion of your race at the baggage collection point in the Royal Botanic Gardens (approximately 10 minute walk from the finish line) 

If you choose to use the race day baggage drop facility at the start please note that your bag may not be available to collect until 12pm due to road closures and potential delays, so we do advise utilising Expo drop off to enable the earliest collection possible. 

Only Blackmores Marathon participants will be able to collect their baggage exclusively from the Marathon Recovery Zone located next to the Sydney Opera House.

Integrated Transport Ticket

Travel on public transport to and from the event on Sunday 20 September is covered for 2020 Blackmores Sydney Running Festival participants and volunteers. Simply show your race bib or volunteers guide to transport staff when boarding train, bus, ferry or light rail services. Remember to keep it safe for your return journey as well.
