Spring Events

You know it’s spring when there are plenty of organised outdoor health and fitness events for everyone. Below is a list of upcoming events that you and/or your family can participate in here in Sydney. You can also just take the family out cycling, canoeing, play tennis, kick a football or throw a frisbee in the park. Come on…when was the last time you threw a frisbee?

  • Neon Run (10 October): A 5 km night-time run (around the Domain and Royal Botanic Garden) with four unique neon zones of rock, disco, pop and house featuring lasers, black lights, strobes, dancers, and DJ contests. [neonrun.com.au]
  • Spartan Race (11 October): If you’re after something a bit more hardcore, this is it. Race against the clock, scaling walls, running through mud, swimming dams, jumping fires and climbing ropes. Kids from 3-14 years can do a modified version of the course. [spartanrace.com.au]
