The course is an out and back loop, and parts of the path can be narrow with runners passing in both directions. We would advise caution for anyone considering participating with a pram.

Can I apply for a preferred start?

The Cooks River Fun Run does not offer preferred starts, however we encourage self seeding on the day to minimise congestion at the start of the run.
