This year’s Sun Run and Cole Classic!
Sun Run (Saturday 4 February 2012)
Sydney’s new summer fun run is expected to attract more than 10,000 participants in its second year. It will showcase the best of Sydney’s Northern Beaches with a spectacular course from Dee Why to Manly.
Starting at 6.45am, the Sun Run will begin at The Strand in Dee Why and finish on The Steyne at iconic Manly Beach with all finishers receiving a commemorative medal.
Runners, joggers, wheelchairs, pushers and walkers are all encouraged to take up the challenge of the Sun Run.
Cole Classic (Sunday 5 February 2012)
In its 29th year, the Cole Classic is Australia’s largest ocean swim, with more than 4,500 people gathering in Manly to take part annually.
Both the 1km and 2km swims will start from Shelly Beach and finish at Manly Beach (subject to conditions) with all finishers receiving a commemorative medal, while category winners and place getters are awarded the famous Cole plates.
This year Fairfax Events will reintroduce an open water swim, known as the Cole Classic Journey Swim, which will begin at Dee Why with a distance of approximately 9km, finishing up on Manly Beach.
