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 be in the final start group of the Blackmores Family Fun Run (C Group).

We  encouraged Family Fun Run participants to carry a drink bottle along the course as there are no drink stations on the Blackmores Family Fun Run course. All finishers will have access to a bottle of water at the conclusion of the event.  

Finisher Rewards

Finishers will receive a commemorative medal featuring Sydney's spectacular icons, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.

Age Restrictions

There are no age restrictions for the Blackmores Family Fun Run.

Event Expo & race bib collection

The ASICS Event Expo will be held in Lower Town Hall, George Street, Sydney from 12 - 14 September 2019.  All participants are required to attend the ASICS Event Expo to collect their race bib.

Event Expo & Clothing Transport

There will be no baggage trucks available at the start line of the Blackmores Family Fun Run. 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 5 minute walk from the Family Fun Run 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 15 September is covered for 2019 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.
