Entries open for Sydney’s first major running event in 2022

Northern Beaches

Runners across Sydney are warming up for Sun Run 2022, which will be one of the first major running events to be held since state-wide lockdowns began.

The 7km and 10km running events will be held on Saturday 5 February 2022 and participants are encouraged to raise funds for a cause close to their heart.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan invited runners from across Sydney and further afield to enter the Sun Run.

“We are absolutely pumped to host the first major running event in 2022,” Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said.

“Many major running events and festivals were cancelled or held virtually over the past eighteen months, so we know runners of all ages and levels are desperate to get out there and compete.

“The Sun Run is also a fun day out for families, with kids under 5 running for free.

“With Sydney opening-up again and a new year with new resolutions, it’s a great time to challenge yourself, get back into running and have a lot of fun with family and friends.”

The 7km and 10km course follow the picturesque coast from Dee Why to Manly Beach.

In line with announced easing of restrictions in the NSW Roadmap, Northern Beaches Council is planning to deliver a range of events over the summer period that will encourage residents and visitors to come together safely in our open spaces.

Discounted early bird entries open today which offers participants a $20 saving on their entry fee up until 9 December. With capacity restrictions in place, participants are encouraged to enter early.
