NSW - Sydney - The Bay Run

We are delighted to announce a Mother's Day Classic Local Location at The Bay Run Sydney!
Local locations will be smaller and more informal compared to traditional MDC events, but they will be big on community spirit!

One of the most popular running routes in the city, or at least on its fringes, is the Iron Cove Bridge circuit, taking in Canada Bay and Iron Cove, with almost the entirety of the run being along the waters edge. The loop takes you past mangroves and parks as it circumnavigates a beautiful part of the harbour. The Mother's Day Classic (Leichhardt) Village is located in Brett Park.
