An 80s-themed “Retro Run” is coming to Sydney on July 28, 2024, and whether you like running, or simply like to dress up, the event is not to be missed!

As running culture experiences a huge resurgence, we find ourselves heading back to its roots - and that is the vibrant, high-energy running scene of the 80s and 90s that made running what it is today.

Through the iconic Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 10K and 5K event this year, we will celebrate this renaissance with an event that is more than just a race. It’s a time-travelling experience, a throwback that merges fitness, fun, and nostalgia! Runners of all ages are welcome and encouraged to dress up for prizes.

2024 will also see our renewed mission to help give the people you love Australia’s best cancer research through our partnership with the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF). This year we will support them as they celebrate their 40-year milestone of helping people who are battling cancer. Since 1984, ACRF has invested more than $174 million across 82 research projects supercharging scientific research with the technology and equipment needed to find new ways to prevent, detect and treat all types of cancer.

About the event

Whether you want to break a personal best on the 10k course or take your time to enjoy the entertainment on the 5K, every stride is a step closer to our vision of a world without cancer. Show your support and join us in raising vital funds for ACRF to give the people you love Australia’s best cancer research by running the Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 10&5k on Sunday 28 July 2024, this year!

The event is known for delivering the fastest and flattest course along Sydney Harbour but this year we will be upping the game on the experience too. In addition to the 80s & 90’s vibe and dress-up, you can expect more music, more entertainment and more fun. So, whether you’re looking to race a PB or just to have a fun day out, the Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 10&5k is not to be missed.

In addition to being a fun day out for everyone, each year the event attracts some elite contenders looking to take out the title! Olympians such as Eloise Wellings, Ryan Gregson, Genevieve Gregson and Ben St Lawrence have all participated previously.

8-year-old artist to design the bibs
In 2018, 3-year-old Ollie was celebrating Christmas when his mum, Rachel discovered some bruising on him. He was quickly diagnosed with leukemia and today is still on a maintenance treatment.

Ollie has always been a great artist, and he really turned to it in amongst his treatments to distract himself from all the beeps and drips surrounding him in the hospital. This year he will be designing the artwork to go onto the race bibs so all runners can run in support of Ollie. Facebook page here

Here are some key stats and points of interest around ACRF:

2 in 5 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. The remaining 3 will be closely affected by a diagnosis.
It’s a deadly problem that needs disruptive solutions, starting with pioneering programs and revolutionary research.
ACRF’s mission is to back brilliant research by giving scientists the technology and equipment they need to find new and improved ways to prevent, detect and treat ALL types of cancer.
