The Lane Cove Fun Run is organised by Lane Cove Public School P&C. The inaugural event was held last year and it was such a success it is now an annual event. In fact, the event was so successful journalist and noted author Peter FitzSimmons wrote an article about the Lane Cove Fun Run in the Sydney Morning Herald. Peter wants other suburbs to get out there and do the same.
The Lane Cove Fun Run is 100% organised by volunteers and its sponsors are all local businesses who believe in the importance of giving back to their local community.
Here are the details:

How Do I Register?
The event is run by the Lane Cove Public School P&C. However, to encourage all local schools to take part in the race there will be an inter-school challenge. Last year the inter-school challenge was won by St Michaels Primary School Lane Cove.
All primary school students who run give their school the chance of winning the Lane Cove Fun Run Plate. The Plate will be awarded to the top primary school overall. Times will be taken for the first 4 runners from each school in both the 2km and 5km event.
There is also a prize of $1000 worth of sporting equipment from RHSports which can be awarded to any pre-school, daycare centre, primary or secondary school. For every student that is entered into the event, their school is given a ticket in the prize draw.
What happens after I finish the run?
During and after the run breakfast will be held on the Kingsford Smith Oval. You will have a choice of:
- Bacon and Egg Rolls
- Sausage sizzle
- Fresh juices
- Freshly baked bread and pastries
- Fresh fruit and healthy breakfast treats.
