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?

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:

-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.
