Sydney Striders 10km Series - Race 10 route



The new start is at the Gatehouse mentioned above. The course then proceeds along a slip road to North Head Scenic Drive and the first turn point using the stone arch traffic island near the hospital. The course then follows North Head Scenic Drive all the way out to the loop, going clockwise then returning to the arch and then repeating. After turning around the arch for the third time, return back to the start area finishing on the slip road.

Numerous speed humps dot the course (44 during the course of the 10k to be precise) , but a good bitumen surface makes it a good course for a PB - and if a PB is out of the question, then the views at the start/finish area at North Head are spectacular. All kilometres are marked, and the distance is certified.

Do I have to be a Strider to run?

No. All runners over 18 years of age are welcome. Well, the one caveat to that is that we must be clear of the various courses at 60 minutes, so any runner who can complete the course in 60 minutes or better is most welcome. Sorry, but not our rule. It is a club run, but all visitors are entitled to outright and lucky draw prizes, can enjoy the free light refreshments, and will have their results published on the web.

When are the races on?

First Saturday in each month from February to November (always check calendar - some special dates happen).

What time do they start?

Rego from 6:00am, Race at 7:00am, Awards at 8:00am, all packed up and gone by 9:00am.

Can I pre-register?

Yes, visitors can pre-register, there is a link on the home page and 10km series page for pre-registration for the next race.

How much is the entry fee?

Striders $7, non members $20 pre rego, $25 on the day.

What do I get for my entry fee?

A certified 10k course with km marks, refreshments and munchies afterwards, outright and lucky draw prizes, results published on the web usually on the same day, mostly traffic free courses, a bunch of friendly Striders to run with.

Do I get a certificate, medal, and/or T-shirt?

No, no, and no. Well, if you are a Strider and win a series category you get a trophy, but this series is a monthly club event which allows visitors to compete, and our finances (and volunteers) just don't stretch to providing certificates, medals, or T shirts.

Can I enter the Series Points Score?

Yes, just join Striders. Striders are automatically in the Points Score and eligible for trophies. Non members are not included in the Points Score. ... and no, we don't backdate points if you join Striders midway thorugh the series!

How do I get a Handicap?

Join Striders, then when you run your first 10k as a Strider a handicap will be calculated and updated after every run.

Do I have to register to enter the Age Group, Handicap, or other Series pointscore competitions?

Once you are a Strider you will be automatically included in every relevant pointscore competition.

Can anyone enter? Am I too slow?

Anyone over 18 years old, capable of getting around the 10k course in about 60 minutes or better is most welcome. The 60 minute limit is due to requirements to clear the various courses by 8:00am.

How fast do people run?

The greyhounds out the front usually finish in about 31 minutes. The bulk of the pack are between 40 and 50 minutes, and the tailenders at 60 minutes.

How many run?

Typically there are about 300 runners, about half are Striders, the rest visitors.

Is the course an accurate 10k?

Absolutely. Every km is marked and all the courses have been measured by the same person who measured the 2000 Olympic Marathons, Walks, and Triathlon courses.
