5 Quick and Easy Runs Around Sydney CBD

Looking for easy runs around Sydney CBD?

Sydney is a beautiful city with a vibrant atmosphere and lots of green spaces. If you are a runner looking for new routes to explore in the heart of the city, the Sydney CBD offers plenty of options for you.

Five quick and easy runs

  1. Luna Park to the Opera House: This iconic route takes you from Luna Park, across the Sydney Harbour Bridge, along the water’s edge through Circular Quay, and on to the Sydney Opera House. The route is around 3.5km and offers breathtaking views of the city and the harbour.

  2. The Botanical Gardens: The Royal Botanical Garden is a stunning park that covers 30 hectares of land in the heart of the city. With multiple paved walkways connecting throughout the gardens, you can run here time and time again, mixing up your route each time. With the lush flora and scenic routes, it is the perfect place for a peaceful run. For a great loop incorporating the stunning architecture of Government House, the beautiful gardens themselves, and wonderful harbour views, you can start at Sydney Conservatorium of Music, make your way passed Government House towards the harbours edge, then run towards Mrs Maquarie’s Chair. From there you can loop down to the Art Gallery of New South Wales then finish by heading back to the Conservatorium. It is a lovely run with plenty of beautiful scenery. 

  3. Hyde Park: Hyde Park is a beautiful green space in the heart of Sydney CBD. With its wide paths, open spaces, beautiful fountains, and views of the city, it is a popular place for runners. The park has a 2km circumference, but to make the most of the beautiful flora, you would want to run within the park itself, taking advantage of the many walkways and landmarks. 

  4. The Rocks: The historic area of The Rocks offers a unique running experience, with its narrow cobbled streets and charming sandstone buildings. The area is located just a short distance from Circular Quay and has several routes to choose from, including a 4.5 km circuit that takes in all its major landmarks.

  5. Sydney Olympic Park: Okay, so this one is a little further from the centre of Sydney CBD, but if you’re looking for a longer run you can head to Sydney Olympic Park. The park has a network of paths that wind through its lush greenery, and its location on the edge of the city offers great views of the city skyline. The park is also home to several landmarks, including the Sydney SuperDome, the ANZ Stadium, and the Aquatic Centre.

In conclusion, the Sydney CBD is a fantastic place for runners, offering a variety of routes that cater to all levels of fitness. Whether you’re looking for a scenic route by the harbor, a peaceful run in the botanical gardens, or a challenging run in the Olympic Park, the city has something to offer for everyone.
