Online entries will close at 6pm Saturday 2nd March 2019.
You can also enter all events on race day. Race day registrations may be limited and we can’t guarantee that entries will be available, so we urge you to pre register. You will need to fill out a form (available once online entries close) and pay first before getting your registration number and timing bib.
Bibs will not be posted. You will have the opportunity to collect the bibs prior to the event at a venue to be announced or from the registration desk on race day. We advise to get there early to avoid extensive queuing.
Yes. Kids under 10 should be under an adult supervision at all time.
It is mandatory that parents run with their child(ren).
Every participant needs a bib. The bib will indicate to the course officials that you are an official participant in the event. But you will not be timed (however we are exploring the possibility to time this event for 2019)
Your 10km bib will allow entry into the 2km event

There is no specific event parking, however there is on street parking around Rhodes or even Wentworth Point. People last year had no problems finding a park close by.
If for some reason there is a shortage of parking this year, the waterfront shopping centre is not too far away, or other possibility is parking on Blaxland Rd just over the opposite side of the train station. (The start/finish line is about 500m away from the Rhodes train station.)
Start and finish lines are both on Shoreline Dr
Just note if you are driving we will have closed Shoreline Dr.
Who organises the Bennelong Bridge Run and where do the profits go?
The Bennelong Bridge Run is brought to you by Hamish and Glen, two local passionate runners. This event isn’t designed to make money rather it is a community fun run, but unfortunately in the day and age of insurances, road closures and other costs we are charging a minimal entry fee to cover our costs. Profits are donated charity, in particular Kiss Goodbye to MS, to fund vital medical research into this condition, which is the most commonly acquired neurological condition in young people.
What sponsorship opportunities are available for 2019?
All sponsorship enquiries should be sent to email@example.com.
Can I get involved without running?
Yes we would love you to come volunteer. It should be a great event with lots going on, and it would be a great way to give back to the community while having fun. If you want to volunteer then feel free to contact us.
The 10km is timed. The family run currently is not timed (but we are working on it, and hopefully we will get this sorted, so keep tuned).
For the 10km event there is disposable timing device, which will be attached to the rear of your bib/entry number. Your timing device allows us to register your official event time.
Results will be available within 24 hours after the event via our website. Usually, all things going well, the results will be available on the morning of the event (first results planned to be displayed at 8:40AM).
The start is located at The Connection, Rhodes. Check out our map on the More Information page.
RaceRunning is an innovative sport for disabled people with impaired balance.
Athletes use a running bike, a three-wheeled frame with a saddle, body support and most notably, no pedals. Athletes run over distances similar to other track and road running disciplines.
Yes you can walk both the 10km run and the 2km family run.
Due to stipulations based on us by the local councils and RMS we do have cut off times these will be published closer to the event. But should allow generous amount of time to complete the event.
Anyone! Kids under 10 should be under an adult supervision at all time.
Please note there are no refunds for any reason whatsoever for non-starters.
Can I run with a pram?
Yes you can but please start at the rear of the field.
Can I participate with a music player?
Music players are allowed on the course. If you are using an iPod or mp3 on course please follow these guidelines:
-Volume must be kept low so as not to cause offence or disturbance to other participants and so you can hear instructions and directions given by event officials, course marshals and emergency services personnel.
-Music players must not be turned on until after the start of your event so that you can hear all instructions and announcements given at the start line.
-You must remain aware of your surroundings at all times, pay particular attention to lead and emergency vehicles and show courtesy to all other participants.
No problems, contact us firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from you, and are here to help.
