Motorists reminded of road closures for Sydney Harbour Fun Run

Sydney motorists and residents are being told to expect delays, with several road closures in place for the Sydney Harbour Fun Run tomorrow.

Parts of the Sydney CBD and Pyrmont will be closed off ahead of the various event tomorrow, though are expected to be reopened by midday.

Motorists are reminded that there will be delays around those areas for most of the morning.


Police officers will also be patrolling the event route to ensure the safety of participants and spectators.

The events and road closures are as follows:

  •  5km race, starts at 7.30am, on George Street, The Rocks, adjacent to the Museum of Contemporary Art.
  • 10km race, starts at 8.30am at the same location and take runners through Circular Quay, Barangaroo, Cockle Bay Wharf, Darling Harbour and Pyrmont.

Detective Chief Inspector John Maricic said police have been working closely with event organisers to ensure the event is safe, secure and family-friendly.

“Our officers will be out and about tomorrow to ensure all those involved in the event, and the general public, enjoy the day without unnecessary interruption.

“We strongly encourage participants and spectators to use public transport to and from the city, as major road closures will be in place for the duration of the event.

“Sections of George Street, as well as roads in the vicinity of Barangaroo and Pyrmont will be closed from 5am. Changes to local access arrangements will also be in place in the Sydney CBD and surrounding precincts.

“Anyone who must drive into the city should allow additional travel time and follow detour signs, as delays are expected.

“Special event clearways will be in effect from 4am to 10.30am on both sides of Hickson Road, between George Street and Pottinger Street, so check signs before parking as vehicles parked in these clearways will be towed and fines apply,” Det Ch Insp Maricic said.
