Feature your charity in the 2017 Blackmores Sydney Running Festival


The 2017 Blackmores Sydney Running Festival takes place on Saturday 17th September, starting at Bradfield Park in Milson's Point and finishing at the Sydney Opera House. With registrations officially opening on Thursday 9th March, it's an event for everyone with a Full Marathon, Half Marathon, Sydney Harbour Bridge Run and Family Fun Run too.

35,000 runners took part in last year's event, and we're expecting that number to increase in 2017. We've incorporated a real interest in fundraising into this year's event, with a truly awesome Run for Free initiative set up to help fundraisers hit and exceed their goal faster than ever before.

All of our 35,000 plus runners will have a chance to fundraise for your charity as part of their running in the event.

One of the best parts is that its free for any charity to participate in the 2017 Blackmores Sydney Running Festival. All you need is a Grassrootz account and you'll automatically participate in the event. Grassrootz' minimum fee is $300 per year and if you raise less than that amount through the event then you won't be charged. So it's a zero risk proposition.

Grassrootz and event organisers Pont3 will be having a hands-on and ask-anything event in Sydney this Thursday 9th March to cover all your questions around how fundraising in the Festival will work.

You'll also see for yourself why leading Australian not-for-profits are making the switch to Grassrootz.

You'll learn how Grassrootz will help you raise more funds and reduce your cost of fundraising.  Grassrootz provides the best possible experience for you, your supporters and your donors.

  • Built for mobile
  • Lowest fees
  • Promote your brand

Awesome food and coffee will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there!
