Upcoming Sydney Events
On most Sundays we meet hail, rain or shine on Hospital Road, at the rear of the Sydney Eye Hospital at 8.00am.
There are some Sundays on which we do not meet on Hospital Road. This year’s exceptions are listed below, along with the community events in which we will be involved this year.
We train (walk or run) for an hour, taking in the sights, sounds and smells of some of Sydney’s most spectacular sites – the Royal Botanic Gardens, the Opera House and Mrs Macquarie’s chair. If you are planning to attend training please use the RSVP system below [This applies to Guides too!]
In order that we can manage the numbers, co-ordinate guides and to comply with COVID Regulations, please RSVP prior to 5 p.m. on the Friday prior to training by clicking here
Achilles Sydney Events Calendar 2021
COVID restrictions have led to the cancellation of running events throughout 2021.
Many road races have switched to being “virtual”, allowing people to run or walk these races within their own suburbs.
Unfortunately, the restrictions have made it difficult to match guides with those wishing to be guided even in these virtual events.
We will continue to monitor the advertised events (real or virtual) and the COVID restrictions in an effort to provide some opportunities to our members.
One such opportunity is the Sun Herald Virtual City2Surf.
Event Start Times: From 6 a.m. 17th October to 4 p.m. 24th October
Event Completes: 6 p.m. 24th October.
Entries open 9th September.
We will be registering teams into this event wherever we can do so within the COVID regulations.
Details to follow.
The Real Insurance 10&5K has been rescheduled to Sunday 5th December.
We intend registering teams from Achilles. Details to follow.
