Perfect timing while I was out in Australia visiting family to do the Sydney Harbour 10km. It was a chilly 7:30am start in The Rocks, with a flat but twisty route following the waterfront out under the Harbour bridge and around Darling Harbour before finishing back at Circular Quay opposite the Sydney Opera House. Amazing views all the way and a great atmosphere with nearly 4000 runners in the 10km plus 750 in the even earlier 5km. 326th place, 42:06.
Followed up by a debut parkrun in Sydney, not too shabby! Next time you’ll have to try the ‘other’ Newcastle parkrun over there.
