The Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 10k Training Programs

Congratulations on your commitment to the Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 10k. Whether you are joining us in Sydney or participating virtually, we're excited to be going on this training journey with you.

This race is one of the flattest, fastest and most scenic 10k road races in Australia, right in the heart of the Sydney CBD. The event 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 achieve a personal best or simply take part in a glorious morning run with lots of good company, our training programs will ensure you’re perfectly prepared to get the most out of yourself and the race.
