Dates: 17th – 19th May 2013

Eventeamwork is very excited to be involved in The Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon for the second year and we would love you to be part of it!

The Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon will be held in Sydney CBD on Sunday the 19th of May. This year we also need volunteers to help at the Half Marathon Expo on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th of May.

The Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon is presented by Colonial First State. It’s Australia’s largest and most prestigious half marathon. This year the event has been expanded to include a two-person relay to complement the 21.1km course.

The Relay consists of teams of two and is split into a 7km and 14km leg.  For more event information go to http://www.smhhalfmarathon.com.au/
