Upcoming fitness challenges
The 21.1km fun run takes competitors on a scenic route through the gorgeous Royal Botanic Gardens, across the Harbour Bridge and around the Sydney Opera House. Join thousands of Sydneysiders taking the challenge with hopes to raise more than $1million for charity.
This year marks the 20th anniversary for the fun run that raises money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The Mother’s Day Classic has contributed more than $30 million to breast cancer research over the years, which has made a significant impact on improving the diagnosis, treatment and management of breast cancer in Australia.
Instead of heading to the pub for after work drinks why not put on your hiking boots instead? Oxfam is calling for teams to join its 2017 Sydney Trailwalker – a 100 kilometre fundraising trek over 48 hours, from the Hawkesbury down to Sydney Harbour. There’s strength in numbers – teams of four will tackle the walk, which aims to push participants beyond their comfort zones. For all that hard work you’ll be treated to stunning scenery along the way; the walk takes in some of Sydney’s best tracks.
