Thank you for entering the North Ryde Fun Run on Sunday 25 August. If there are any safety issues on the day we will notify you but we expect to proceed to plan. We are sure you will enjoy the day.
The venue is the Macquarie University Sport Fields, corner of Culloden and Talavera Roads, Macquarie Park. There is plenty of parking but why not consider walking or car pooling to the site? There will be car park attendants to help you park. Please proceed from the car park to the entry to the Pavilion.
At the entry door, carers and spectators will be asked for a gold coin donation for youth mental health research and treatment.
All entrants must check in at the Registration Desk so we know you have arrived. Entrants in the 2km event will be issued a wrist band and 5km event entrants will be issued a number that allows Fun Run Marshalls to know you are an authorised participant in an event. If you have not yet paid, you will also need to do that at Registration. A friend or family member who wants to enter late can do so at Registration.
If you are part of the Intercollegiate 5 km Run, you need to register first. Please wear your college colours.
The Location Map below shows the layout of the site and the route for the 2 km Walk and the 5 km Run.
There will be a secure Cloakroom in the Pavilion to store bags for which you will be given a numbered ticket. We will do our best to keep them safe but can't take responsibility for your belongings.
