The Sydney Morning Herald is just round the corner (May 19th 2013) but this year there is a new event available.
Previously the event has been a half marathon only event. It’s actually the only half marathon only event which I know of. All the other events, Sydney Running Festival, Gold Coast Marathon, Melbourne Marathon and Canberra Marathon all have other running distances available. (10km, half marathon and marathon). This year, the organisers of the event are introducing a relay half marathon.
Tough Mudder events are hardcore 20 km-long obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. With the most innovative courses and half a million inspiring participants, Tough Mudder is the premier adventure challenge series in the world.
The Urban Max is part adventure race, part scavenger hunt and part amazing race, taking teams of two through the heart of Sydney. This event is for all skill and fitness levels, with a number of the activities needing more brainpower than muscle.
The Sydney Running Festival is on again Sunday, 16th September 2012. It’s one of Australia’s most spectacular course, so sign up quick to join over 35,000 other runners and be a part of this event!
