There’s a fabulous charity run every winter from Hyde Park to Bondi Beach on streets, waterfront, and cliffs. It’s one of the world’s most popular road races, and the 14-km course is so good, it’s worth doing year-round. People dress in crazy costumes and do stunts to raise awareness for causes and surf lifesaving. You can find a map on the race’s website. The big hill about three quarters of the way to Bondi is called Heartbreak Hill, and it’s the undoing of many unsuspecting runners’ lead, so pace yourself. The good news is once you’re over that, it’s basically downhill to Bondi. Ocean and cliff views will distract you all the way to the beach.
