Event Dates: Sunday 18th September 2022 - Sunday 18th September 2022

Available Positions: Please login to view

Applications Close: Tuesday 6th September 2022

Location: Sydney

2022 will be the 20th Runiversary of the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival, the sole remaining participant legacy of Sydney 2000. The event is owned by Athletics Australia and managed by Pont3.

Participants are lucky enough to cross one of Australia's most iconic landmarks, The Sydney Harbour Bridge - traffic free! Each course has a wonderfully scenic route, with 3 of 4 distances finishing at the Sydney Opera house. On offer is the Blackmores Sydney Marathon (42.195km), Blackmores Half Marathon (21.0975km), 10km Blackmores Bridge Run or 3.5km Blackmores Family Fun Run for a truly unforgettable experience.

Excitingly, the Blackmores Sydney Marathon has been announced as an official candidate race for the Abbott World Marathon Majors. This would see the Blackmores Sydney Marathon join an esteemed group of races, Tokyo Marathon, Boston Marathon, TCS London Marathon, BMW-Berlin Marathon, Bank of America Chicago Marathon, and TCS New York City Marathon.

The only running event in Australia to be broadcast live each year, the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival boasts over 40,000 participants from over 66 countries and has raised over $24 million dollars since its inception for charitable organisations. This year we welcome Beyond Blue, Children’s Cancer Institute Australia, and Dementia Australia as the headline charities.

Join us for a memorable day out in Sydney!


We look forward to having you as part of our team of Blackmores Volunteers. As a Volunteer you will be working with event staff, charities, community and sporting groups, students, and other individual volunteers.

There are numerous locations around the course and within the start/finish venues on Sunday, 18 September. We're also seeking help at the ASICS Event Expo and Bib Collection from Thursday 15 - Saturday 17 September.

No experience is required for most roles – just positive energy, a friendly attitude and willingness to work within a team and take directions from other volunteers, team leaders, and supervisors.

Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community, gain event experience, and meet like-minded people. Get involved on Sunday, 18 September 2022.

See you there! :)
