The perfect way to spend Father’s Day with the whole family
The 2km fun run & walk is designed for everyone, including families and designed so that mum or dad can do the 5km or 10km and then join the rest of the family for the 2km after (sign up for one of the combos!). Primarily along Manly’s beachfront promenade (up to North Steyne) it’s very flat and suitable for prams and wheelchairs. There will be a few surprises in-store along the way to entertain the kids, so it’s much more than just a walk along the beach!
The Fun Run & Walk route is no ‘Park Run’, with two sharp hills, and stairs to bring in some spectacular scenery. Total ascent is 85 meters.
You’ll start on Manly’s ocean side heading towards North Styne Life Saving club, turn around to Manly Life Saving Club, before taking Marine Parade to Fairy Bower, a few hill climbs and stairs into and through ICMS grounds with a relief down hill along Darley road, Addison and back to the start line along Marine Parade.
There are a few hill climbs and stairs to get the heart pumping, but don’t worry, you do get to come back down!
Rotary's 5km Fun Run and Walk ROUTE b - wheelchair and pram friendly
5km Fun Run and Walk - "b"
customised to suit wheelchairs & prams
Suitable option for wheelchairs and prams, no stairs and one small hills to get the heart pumping! Just the spectacular scenery we all love in Manly! You’ll start on Manly’s ocean side before heading to North Steyne Life Saving Club, doing a short loop at Denison street back to North Steyne Life Saving Club before, turning around and traversing the beautiful route to Shelley beach and back to the start line with a short sharp hill to the base of ICMS to get the heart pumping! (Option without the hill is possible)
The 10km route is the ultimate tour of Manly’s beautiful scenery. Similar to the 5km route, with and additional 5 km through Manly's North Head. Total ascent is 153 meters.
You’ll start on Manly’s ocean side heading towards North Styne Life Saving club, turn around to Manly Life Saving Club, before taking Marine Parade to Fairy Bower and a few hill climbs and stairs into and through the ICMS grounds. Here the 10km route will take you through the beautiful bush in the Manly North Head on sealed and unsealed roads to the Bella Vista Cafe, returning via North Head Scenic Drive with a short loop through Q Station. Following down Darley road, right on Addison and back to the start line along Marine Parade. Unfortunately not suitable for prams nor wheelchairs. A 2 hour 15 min cut off time will be enforced as we need to reopen the roads, but this shouldn't be an issue for a fast walker!
We don’t think there’s a better 10km route in Sydney.
