  • Event Information

    • The Sydney Marathon is Australia’s largest running event. Truly a world-class event, it has consistently achieved IAAF Road Race Gold Label status and is an Abbott World Marathon Majors candidate race. The marathon is run on a spectacular course showing off the iconic sights of Sydney.

      The 2024 Sydney Marathon Course

      The Sydney Marathon starts across the harbour on Miller St, North Sydney crosses the Sydney Harbour Bridge (Wow!), runs through the iconic Darling Harbour looping through The Rocks out into suburbs. Passing Hyde Park, you’ll take on a long straight up Flinders Street before a single loop of Centennial Park. From here it’s back down to Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair before you finish in front of the Sydney Opera House. Whilst it’s not a completely flat route the marathon is still considered fast and very runner and spectator friendly. The time limit is 7 hours. All the races start and cross over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and finish in front of the Sydney Opera House, except the Fun Run which ends at the Royal Botanic Gardens.

    • "Great value"

      The people who ran the tour went above the call of duty, it was great value for money, they made the whole experience great and the hotel was amazing. Nice and close to the start line and I met some wonderful people.

      I would definitely recommend you guys to anyone else and I’m definitely keen to use you guys again, hopefully if I can come back to do the Sydney marathon in 2024.

      Marathons made simple

      The team at Marathon Tours were incredibly helpful, assisting with booking requests prior to the trip and then making sure everything during the stay was as simple as possible. Getting to the start of the half marathon looked like it would be difficult, but ferries were organised to drop us in the precinct. Probably one of the least stressful events I’ve taken part in. Would highly recommend this team.

      "Attention to detail"

      This is the first time we’ve engaged marathon tours & travel. We were impressed with the customer service, organisation and attention to detail. It made the marathon experience less stressful and we’d consider engaging their services again for future events!
