Blackmore’s Sydney Running Festival (Harbour Bridge & The Rocks), Sun 15th September 2019
If you’re not a Sydney local (many of the thousands of participants aren’t), you’ll need a place to stay for the festival. Location is key: with start and finish lines around the picturesque Circular Quay area, either at the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, or The Domain, The Russell Boutique Hotel is perfectly located in the midst of all the action. Public transport is often free on the day for competitors (check your entry conditions) so save money, avoid road closures, and stay in the heart of the city. With finish lines close by, a stay in the city centre at The Russell Boutique Hotel in The Rocks is ideal for tired legs (or legs that may have had a few celebratory post-race beers at the Fortune of War).
Once the race is over, you’ll feel feel all sorts of things – proud, tired, hungry, and thirsty. The Rocks has an assortment of great bar and dining options to celebrate, which makes staying nearby so convenient. You can quickly go back to your room at The Russell Boutique Hotel, shower, and celebrate at the nearby Fortune of War or The Push Bar.
Whether you are an individual competitor looking for a cosy budget accommodation option, or a running group looking for spacious rooms with twin and triple bedding options, we’ve got something for all types of runners.
