The Blackmores Sydney Running Festival Schools Challenge is a fun initiative that encourages well-being and physical activity within primary, secondary and specialist schools throughout NSW. The main focus is participating in the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival, with its flat and fast courses and beautiful Sydney sights.

Schools are encouraged to, and rewarded for getting as many individuals, pupils, teachers and parents to be physically active and coming together on event day Sunday 15 September 2019 to run or walk. The Blackmores Sydney Running Festival Schools Challenge aims to play a key role in getting school students physically active and moving in preparation for the event and to continue the good work afterwards!
