Have you heard about the new ultra marathon coming to Sydney? For the first time ever, the Bondi to Manly Ultra will show off the very best of Sydney’s harbour views in an 80km race along the coastline, so sign up and start training now!


The Janssen Bondi to Manly Ultra is an 80km ultra marathon around Sydney Harbour from Bondi Beach to Manly Beach happening on November 5th 2022. Limited tickets go on sale this Wednesday 23rd of March so make sure to nab your spot!

All proceeds go to the Bondi to Manly Walk Supporters, a registered Australian charity that maintains and preserves the walking track, as well as the public land and natural environment around Sydney Harbour.

The Route

Starting at Bondi Pavilion, the route follows the 80km Bondi to Manly walking track around Sydney Harbour. Take in the very best of clifftop ocean views up to Watsons Bay, then jog your way around the Harbour foreshore before crossing the finish line at Manly.

With plenty of iconic Australian landmarks and cultural sites, gorgeous beaches, and national parkland; this ultra marathon is arguably one of the most gorgeous routes in Sydney.


Ultra vs. Relay

There are two options to complete the Bondi to Manly; Ultra and Relay.


Runners that nominate to complete the ultra option will tackle the entire 80km route solo over the course of the day. Oooft!

Entry costs $279 for those keen bean Ultrarunners.


If you’re not too keen on completing the entire 80km by yourself, you can register as a relay runner. The relay option will see teams of four split the course into roughly 20km routes, with each team member taking on their own leg of the race. It’s a great choice if you’re looking for a challenge to do with friends or colleagues. Get your relay team together and keep each other motivated to train over winter.

Entry costs $139 per person for Relay Runners.


There are only a limited number of places available on the starting line, so make sure you don’t miss out on being one of the first people to run the Bondi to Manly Ultra. Tickets go on sale THIS WEDNESDAY March 23rd. The only requirement is that you’re 18 years or older come race day. And it’s up to you to make sure you’re fit enough to race – time to hit the tarmac!

More of a cheerleader?

There’ll be dedicated spectator locations across the 80km course. Each location will have parking and access for friends and family and space to gather together. If you’re running, feel free to ask your mates to bring you some extra water and snacks for extra fuel along the route.

Bondi to Manly Ultra is also looking for volunteers to help out on the day as well. If that sounds more up your alley, check out their volunteer info.
