Sydney Morning Herald Sun Run and Cole Classic


February 3 & 4 sees the return of Sydney’s most enjoyable sporting weekend The Sydney Morning Herald Sun Run and Cole Classic. With fun runs, open water swimming and the introduction of the brand new Aquathlon, Sydney's breathtaking Northern Beaches is expected to host 10,000 participants over this fabulous weekend.

It kicks off on February 3, with 7km and 10km fun runs along Manly's stunning coastline. Both of the Sydney Morning Herald Sun Run events start at Dee Why Surf Life Saving Club and finish beside the iconic Manly Lifesaving Club on Manly Beach, with runners of all levels challenging themselves along the picturesque Northern Beaches courses. Children under five run for free.

This year will also see the introduction of a brand new hybrid event, The Sydney Morning Herald Aquathlon, designed to bring even more fun to the weekend's festivities. The Sydney Morning Herald Aquathlon will give participants the chance to challenge themselves with the 8.5km course (run and swim) on February 3. Triathlete and Run Theory Ambassador James Thorp is hoping to take out the title and earn his place in history in the inaugural Aquathlon event.
