Running shoes are an essential piece of kit for runners and cross country skiers.
However, a new race has emerged for those who want to take part in the marathon.
Running Australia is hosting its first marathon in Sydney in 2020.
Runners will have to compete against themselves as they set out on a course in Sydney’s east.
Run Australia, which is part of the Run Australia Federation, says the race will provide a great opportunity for runners to experience the city, as well as meet other runners.
The first event will be held on November 1.
Run Australian has teamed up with the Melbourne Marathon Club to run the event, which has been approved by the Melbourne Athletic Club.
Run Australians CEO Rob Hall said the first event was “highly anticipated” and hoped to attract more runners to the marathon, which was on its second year in 2017.
“We think there are about 100,000 runners who can benefit from having a fun race in the city,” Mr Hall said.
“It is a good opportunity for people who have never raced in the City to get up on the racecourse and have a look around.”
Mr Hall says Run Australia was able to get the event approved because it had a good response from the Melbourne Olympic Park, where the event is taking place.
“The Olympics have really been a great catalyst for the run,” he said.
He said the race would provide “great recreational benefits” for runners.
“There are plenty of people who are going to want to get down and run the marathon on the course, but we think there is something more about it for them,” Mr Scott said.
Run Aus says it hopes the event will attract up to 100,0000 people to the race.
The organisers said they were keen to attract runners who were not necessarily looking to run a marathon but wanted to experience Sydney’s culture and history.
“People are going for the experience and it’s going to be a great race for people,” Mr Wall said.
Organisers are also keen to get runners to cross the city’s borders for the race, which takes place on November 2.
The marathon is a long way from the famous race in London, which took place in 2020, but the organisers are keen to draw in runners who may not normally get to see the city.
“Our aim is to draw some of the world’s best marathoners,” Mr Barr said.
“We want them to come down here, and they’re not going to like what we’re doing.”
