The Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 5k training program

Congratulations on your commitment to the Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 5k.

This race is one of the flattest, fastest and most enjoyable 5k running events in Australia, right in the heart of the Sydney CBD. The race is ideally positioned in the middle of the year to provide optimum running conditions and serve as the perfect goal race to keep you fit during the winter months.

Whether you’re looking to test yourself or just wish to participate in a glorious morning run with lots of good company, our beginners training program will ensure you’re perfectly prepared to get the most out of yourself and the race.

Beginner program

This 5-week training program is suitable for those who have never completed a 5k race before. It has been designed by dual Olympian and Australian 10k record holder (27:24.95), Ben St Lawrence, who is also a cofounder and coach of RunCrew, one of Australia’s top running and coaching groups.
