Australia Day Weekend Marathon on Sunday, 28 January 2018 is 42kms around the harbour from Manly to Watson's Bay in Sydney, NSW.
This event is fun, social and very scenic. There is a fast ferry from Watson's Bay back to Manly after drinks at the pub. The entry $50; there are no medals, and every cent will go to charity. Meet outside Bavarian Bier Cafe Manly Wharf to start, and the finish is at Watson's Bay Pub.
BYO hydration, there are plenty of shops along the way with coffee at Balmoral (13kms) and beer at Kirribilli (25kms). Parking is free all day up near Manly Hospital on Darley Rd. There are plenty of places to DNF and ferry back to Manly if you are short on time. There are no medals or finisher's shirts.
