For the first time ever, City-Bay have added a half marathon to the event - 21.1!

2018 is the first year ever, the City-Bay has included a half marathon event - 21.1km. Over the years we have had many participants ask for a longer distance and we are delighted to introduce the 21.1km event. The half marathon is a IAAF-AIMS Certified course. We do recommend that anybody entering the half marathon should be able to run faster than a 7 minute km. This will ensure you won't clash with the 12km runners who will be starting at 8:00am.



Your entry fee not only allows you to participate in the iconic Westpac City-Bay Fun Run Presented by Sunday Mail, but also includes the following goodies:

  • A Race Day Guide with over $200 worth of vouchers and discounts
  • Free transport to and from the finish lines and start lines up until 2:00pm on event day

  • Free Neverfail water
