Athletics NSW in partnership with Sydney Olympic Park are very proud to announce the creation of the 5K Anniversary – Sydney Olympic Park – a once-in-a-20-year opportunity to experience the Park like never before!

Participant Guide for the Event 

How does the event work? When can I run the course? How do I upload my selfie so I go into the draw to win a pair of top-line Mizuno running shoes? What if I live regionally?
All these questions – and more – will be answered via our “Guide to Participating in the Anniversary 5K – Sydney Olympic Park“.

If you do have any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at anytime via runnsw@nswathletics.org.au.

Event Overview

Visit Sydney Olympic Park and celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Sydney 2000 Olympic & Paralympic Games!

Athletics NSW has created an accessible 5K route, which will be provided as a easy-to-follow map complete with in-precinct signage, that takes in many of the iconic locations and legacies of the Sydney 2000 Olympics & Paralympics, during the 20th anniversary period of Tuesday, 15th September – Thursday, 29th October, of both Olympic Games.*

See the Olympic Cauldron, tributes to Cathy Freeman and other Olympic Champions, the famed “Blue Line” of the Marathon, many of the Olympic venues, and much more, as you run, roll or stroll your way around the Park. Take in history, and be a part of history.

*Please note that all COVID-19 regulations will be required to be adhered to by all participants, including those living regionally in NSW/outside of NSW. For those outside the Sydney region, a remote 5K experience will be available for this event.

What does the anniversary 5K include for me?

We’ll provide you with the full course maps of the route when you register for the experience – both a fun, cartooned version with some the iconic Sydney 2000 landmarks highlighted (you can view a couple of them below!), and a more detailed map over lay on the Sydney Olympic Park precinct. You’ll receive links to both the complete maps upon registering for the event.


Win a pair of Wave Sky 4 Shoes from Mizuno

Thanks to our good friends at Mizuno, we’ve got 4 pairs of Wave Sky 4 shoes (worth $250 each) that everyone will go into the draw for by doing the following:

  • 1 pair for simply registering for the event!
  • 1 pair for the best answer to the event registration question “What is your favourite memory of the Sydney 2000 Olympic and/or Paralympic Games?” in the event registration form
  • 1 pair for taking the best selfie whilst participating in the event at Sydney Olympic Park using the hashtag #Anniversary5K (the more creative, the better!)
  • 1 pair for taking the best selfie whilst participating in the event during a remote 5K experience (participating in the event in any location you wish!) using the hashtag #Anniversary5K

Personalised Digital Medals

Personalised digital medals and congratulatory messages will also be sent from us to you, and you’ll be able to boast to your friends how you created your own history by celebrating the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games by doing a 5K, your way!
