Each year, the Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon event aims to raise much needed funds for more than 500 charities. Celebrating its 20th year, the race is celebrating the milestone with a new, single lap course that takes in Sydney’s most spectacular scenery.
The new course allows for increased capacity of Australia’s largest and most prestigious Half Marathon. Sunday, May 15thwill be the first time more than 10,000 runners will see Sydney harbour side icons such as the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Pyrmont Peninsula and Darling Harbour precinct from a different perspective. The new course has retained the best elements of the old, two-lap course while highlighting other great areas of the city.
Scott Aggett, Director at Belle Property East & City, will be running the SMH Half Marathon this year in honour of his father, Allan, who has suffered from Parkinson’s disease for over 30 years. Scott will be raising funds to support Parkinson’s NSW.
Parkinson’s disease is the 2nd most common neurological disease in the world. It is a complex condition, with no known cause or cure. Parkinson’s NSW is the peak body providing specialised support and information to people living with Parkinson’s disease, their families and carers.
