About the MS Walk and Fun Run
Warm up those legs this winter and join 5000 other runners and walkers along the beautiful Sydney Harbour Foreshore for the 2010 MS Walk and Fun Run. Whether you’re an elite runner or a weekend walker, make sure you’re part of the action – stroll or sprint, roll or run or even travel by pram! Whatever you choose, you will be helping to support thousands of Australians living with multiple sclerosis.
The sheer beauty of Sydney Harbour gets forgotten by many Sydneysiders. On the 6th of June, you, your family and friends have the opportunity to be reminded of what we have here on our doorstep by getting involved in the MS Walk and Fun Run.
The event will start and finish from the picturesque Hyde Park and will follow a scenic track around Sydney, through the Rocks and by the iconic Opera House.
Walk routes are between 5km and 16km and take in some of Sydney City’s most scenic and iconic parklands, gardens and bridges. All walking courses are stroller and wheelchair friendly. Watch out for our roving entertainers along the way. Recover, relax and replenish at the finish line with our 20th birthday festivities in Hyde Park with live music, loads of entertainment for the whole family and a tasty BBQ lunch.
If you want a challenging course consider the 8km Run event which is based at Bradfield Park, Milsons Point. Run through the harbour-side streets of Milsons Point to Balls Head reserve and return. Finish with a sprint down the famous Luna Park boardwalk.
