How to “Run for Free” & Support Our Organisation?

Blackmores Sydney Running Festival provides a “Free-Entry Opportunity” to all runners. Such opportunity becomes available to runners who organise a fundraising initiative and raise a minimum of $500 for an official charity partner to BSRF, such as Australian Relief Organisation.

Table below illustrates courses, distances, start times and registration (ticket) costs to the 2017 BSRF event:







Assume you wish to run 21 kms on the day. Normally, your registration (ticket) to the event would cost $105. However, if you organise a fundraising activity and ask your family, friends and colleagues to support your participation; you will have the cost of your ticket rebated to you once you raise $500. By doing so, you will not only run for free but also make a great difference by supporting Australian Relief Organisation.
