Over 4270 competitors took part in the Sun Run on Sydney’s Northern Beaches today from Dee Why Beach in either a 7km or 10km run or aquathon, (run-swim-run) ahead of the Cole Classic tomorrow at Manly Beach.

More than $135,000 was also raised for WIRES and other charities nominated by the entrants.

Mayor Michael Regan congratulated the winners and all who participated. Event ambassadors Sea Eagles legend Steve Menzies, Sydney FC striker Remy Siemsen got participants underway before joining the 7km event.

“It was fantastic to see so many out this morning running competitively or just enjoying spending time with family and friends by taking part in this community fun run,” Mayor Regan said.

“Six months ago it looked like this event, and the iconic Cole Classic, might not be able to proceed. It was fortunate Council and Manly Life Saving Club were able to step in and pick them up so the community could continue to enjoy these popular events on the Northern Beaches.

“Thanks to all the volunteer groups who helped make the event such a success.”
