Hey, fellow runners, get ready to shake, rattle, and roll your legs for the Shake Out 5km run, your perfect pre-marathon warm-up! We'll start our journey at Circular Quay, where the excitement brews like a caffeinated frenzy - though you'll have to finish the run before we get that caffeine!

We'll keep the history light, but you can't miss the charm of the Rocks as we zip through its cobblestone streets. Then, brace yourself for the lively Barangaroo - vibrant views to keep you grooving!

We'll take a reverse marathon course through Barangaroo and Darling Harbour! It's like running backward in time (if only that were possible!). But don't worry, we'll make it quick with a shortcut across the city, because we know you're anxious to conquer that marathon like a pro!

Now, hold on tight, 'cause we're heading down Macquarie Street, and boy, it's a downhill delight! Feel the wind in your hair (and probably in your face too) as you dash toward the grand finale - the iconic Sydney Opera House!

So, lace up those running shoes and join us for the Shake Out 5km run - a casual, laughter-filled adventure that'll get you in the marathon mood! We've got Circular Quay, the Rocks, Barangaroo, a twisty reverse course, and a downhill finish - all packed into this epic run! Let's shake out those pre-race jitters and get ready to crush that marathon like champs! See you at the starting line!
