Course:  Introduced in 2001, the Sydney Marathon followed the same course as the marathon during the 2000 Summer Olympics the previous year. The marathon and half marathon both finish at the Sydney Opera House, while the shorter runs end at the Royal Botanic Gardens. In 2010 the marathon course was changed to flatten it out which, according to the organizers, makes it "a faster, more scenic and spectator friendly course". The Blackmores Sydney Marathon, Blackmores Half Marathon and the Bridge Run courses are AIMS Certified accurate courses.
