Your race timing bib will be sent to your registration address provided you have registered before 11:59 PM on 4 June 2023. All entries after this date will have to collect their timing bibs on the morning of the race.
Online registrations will stay open right up until race start. To collect your race bib, show your confirmation email (on your mobile device) to the team at the registration desk and then you will be ready to race.
The event starts and finishes at Claude Cameron Grove on the corner of Kintore Street and Westbrook Avenue in Wahroonga.
The 5km is 1 lap of the course and the 10km is 2 laps. The new 2km is over a separate course.
We strongly advise that participants catch public transport to the event where possible. Claude Cameron Grove is 2.8km from the Turramurra Train Station. The Transdev shuttle bus that ran in previous years is not available with the change to CDCNSW. We hope to work to reinstate this service in 2024.
If you are planning on driving directly to the event we ask that you do not park on the course itself (see map above). Please park away from the event to the West of Eastern Road, to the North of Junction Rd or to the South of Burns Rd.
Supporting Special Olympics
Sydney Upper North Shore
Special Olympics Sydney Upper North Shore makes a positive impact on the quality of life of children and adults with an intellectual disability. Our schools program helps children and their parents to take that first step of participation through a professionally delivered gross motor skills program.
Our grass-roots sports program starts with 1-on-1 support and provides access to weekly participation that would not otherwise be available. Over 250 athletes at 40 venues in 11 sports across the North Shore.
Where we can we also offset the costs of our althletes and volunteer support team members travelling to regional, state, national and world competions. We help develop leaders and role models through our Athlete Leadership Program.
None of this is possible without financial support – thanks so much on behalf of our special athletes for making a difference.
