The best funs runs in Sydney

Add one of these fun runs to your fitness goals for this year

By Olivia Gee

Sydney has a few major running festivals every year, including one full marathon that traces the streets of the city over Sydney Harbour Bridge and through Centennial Park. For events of a more manageable distance, there are regular 5K, 10K and half marathons that take place every season and other annual courses. There's runs suitable for kids and families, and funds raised by most events go towards charitable organisations around the country.

Start training at these free outdoor gyms in Sydney or scenic running routes. Or, plan the ultimate chill out session, post-marathon, at these yoga retreats in NSW
