SYDNEY RUNNING GUIDES
Get the most out of your exercise routine with our guides to Sydney's tracks and trails.
Whether you consider yourself a casual pavement pounder or a goal setter on the running track, Sydney’s an excellent city to live in if you’re trying to rack up your step count. We’re blessed with coastal trails, bush walks, expansive inner city parks and harbourside pathways where you can stretch your legs and work towards your personal best — especially if that’s simply lacing up your runners and getting outside.
To help keep you motivated, we’ve teamed up with Adidas to bring you high and low effort running routes around Sydney. We’ve picked out scenic lookout points, secluded swimming holes and places to pick up a snack on your journey, too. And, to help you discover even more, we’ve included special maps in each guide — so you can tailor your own running adventure.
