About Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon

The SMH Half Marathon is a half marathon run through Sydney’s central business district. The event is organised by the Sydney Morning Herald and sponsored by Colonial First State. The course takes in such sites as The Rocks, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House, and the Royal Botanic Gardens. The race starts next to St Mary’s Cathedral, and finishes in Hyde Park. Prior to 2008, the course ran a similar route, but started and finished near The Rocks. The event has a capacity field of 10,500, and entries are often closed weeks before race day.

The 2010 event was won by Martin Dent in a time of 1:04:28. The women’s winner was Cassie Fien, in a time of 1:11:59.

The event is accompanied by a fundraising initiative primarily targeted at Breast Cancer Network Australia, in memory of Kerryn McCann, who succumbed to breast cancer in December 2008.
