The Sydney Marathon Shakeout 5km is a perfect route for those who want to shake their legs out before the big marathon race. The route starts and ends at Circular Quay, which is a central location and easily accessible by public transport. The run takes in the Rocks, Darling Harbour, and some parts of the marathon route.
The first part of the route takes runners through the historic area of the Rocks, where they will pass by the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. The route then heads towards the vibrant Darling Harbour, where runners can enjoy the beautiful waterfront scenery while passing by various restaurants, cafes, and entertainment venues.
After the Darling Harbour section, the route takes runners along parts of the marathon course, including Pyrmont Bridge, where they can enjoy stunning views of the city skyline. The course also includes some gentle inclines, which provide an excellent opportunity to stretch the legs and prepare for the marathon.
The route finishes back at Circular Quay, where runners can enjoy a well-deserved coffee at one of our favourite cafes in the area. The pace of the run is very light, allowing runners to focus on shaking their legs out and getting ready for the marathon.
