Course Details
Please note that Sunrise City is different to your normal running event. We don’t close roads, there are no barriers and the event isn’t timed. We have some traffic management in place to help with key crossings, so please ensure that you cross at the designated points.

We appreciate that when you’re out running, you don’t like to stop, but please be aware of everything around you and don’t expect vehicles or other path users to get out of your way. If you need to stop to remain safe, please do so

Sunrise City is a 5k run or walk that takes place at the unusual time of 5.30am on a Friday morning in the summer.

If you have already collected your t-shirt then you have everything you need. Just gather near the War Memorial and you’ll be led to the start line when it’s time to run.

If you do need to collect a shirt or would like to register on the day, then please visit registration which is located near the War Memorial and our team will look after you.

The event starts and finishes in front of the War Memorial in Victoria Park.

With this being a very early start, public transport will be intermittent depending on where you are coming in from. Please check local bus timetables.

If you are driving to the event, then Victoria Park Car Park will be open. This is approximately a 200 metre walk from the start. Alternative parking is also available at the NCP on East Street.

Please note that normal parking fees apply
