AUSTRALIA'S newest running festival, Rebel Run Sydney, will be held on Sunday, October 27, at Sydney Olympic Park.
It is being presented by Fairfax's Sunday newspaper, the Sun-Herald.
Entries are now open.
A fun, family event, Run Sydney is the new name for the much-loved Run4Fun annual event which includes for the first time a half marathon as well as the 3 kilometre fun run for kids and 10 kilometre course. Elite runners, wheelchair athletes, walkers, pram pushers, joggers and kids can join in and support their chosen charity, with prizes for highest team, and individual fund-raisers.
After the run - which can be walked, run or skipped - Essential Kids will host a free BYO family picnic.
There will be an animal petting zoo presented by Taronga Zoo, a kids' training session with players from the Waratahs and Canterbury Bulldogs, face-painting, music and entertainment.
