The Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon RELAY is a fantastic way to be part of a half marathon! You can choose to run either the 14km or 7km of the full 21km. You enter with a buddy who runs the alternative section of the route (14km or 7km) and together you conquer the 21km! This event takes part in the heart of Sydney. The course takes in such sites as The Rocks, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House, and the Royal Botanic Gardens.
If you are travelling, each participant is responsible for organising and covering the cost of their travel and accomodation. Throughout the program you receive recommendations and a chance to travel with those training with you. We have team celebrations together and everyone is invited!
Head to the offical event website for details on race day.
IMPORTANT: Each Can Too participant must enter their goal event at their own expense. Entries often sell out in advance - so first in, best dressed!
What level of running experience do I need?
Anyone can join! The Can Too training program is professionally based and structured to ensure that people of all levels of fitness and experience – from novices to seasoned athletes – are well prepared to achieve their personal goal in their chosen endurance event. The coaches are motivational and the journey is addictive as members develop new friends, share experiences and have fun. The team environment is a vital component in helping you to feel motivated, inspired and supported.
