Manly Fun Run
Time Out says
Speed through this beachside suburb on a Father’s Day run
The Manly Fun Run is turning ten in 2019, and amblers of all abilities are invited to celebrate the double digits with 2km, 5km and 10km races on September 1.
They’ve updated the courses this year, which will start and finish at Hotel Steyne. The longest route will take you from the Corso to down to the ferry terminal, around North Harbour, up to the scenic vantage point at North Head and eventually down to Shelly Beach. The 5k essentially follows the first half of the full track, and the 2k sticks to the flat path between the Corso and North Steyne Surf Life-Saving Club. You can take the shorter distances at a run or a walk in your activewear or fancy dress, but serious sprinters should aim for a PB on the 10k.
And what are you running for? The money raised by the event goes towards the Manly Rotary, which is responsible for a range of charitable works in the community and further afield. In addition to supporting local people experiencing homelessness and those living with mental and physical illnesses, the organisation also aims to provide disaster relief, medical care, freshwater facilities and education across the globe.
Registrations for the event will open in June.
