Race course with a finish in the Athletics Centre
All races will start on the famous Dawn Fraser Avenue adjacent to Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre (SOPAC) and on approach to the finish, runners will exit Dawn Fraser Avenue near the start line, run along the pathway, enter SOPAC through the main gates and then enter the Athletics arena via the 'marathon' tunnel and complete the final 350m on the track.

This will be a rare opportunity to finish a road race inside an international athletics stadium which will make for a great spectator event.

A recovery area will be set up after the finish line for runners to recovery with water and electrolyte and remove their timing chips. After exiting the recovery zone runners can meet their friends and family up in the grandstand OR out on the grass infield.
