BayRun 2019 - Sunday, August 4

“The BayRun is one of my favourite races and the community spirit makes it fabulous for families.”

Thomas Do Canto

(5 time BayRun champion and record holder)

Thank you for helping make the 17th annual BayRun another huge success.

BayRun 2019 once again attracted more than 1200 runners, walkers, kids and dogs.  

Congratulations to our 2019 placegetters. In the 7km Men's Open division, current record holder Thomas Do Canto was in first place with a time of 20.22. Dylan Offord was second with a time of 21.18, closely followed by Patrick Cantlon in third place with a time of 21.19.
The 7km Women's Open Division saw Nina Rillstone placed first with a time of 25.11, Emma Olson-Keating was second with a time of 25.19 and in third place was Belinda Boot with a time of 25.32. Well done to you all!

Congratulations to everyone who completed the 2km Primary OSHCare challenge. Special mention to our first, second and third place-getters. In the boys' category Will Cheshire, was placed first. Charlie Woods, second and Omri Thaler, third. In the girls' category Claudia Meaker was in first place, second place was Maria Skiadopoulos, and third place, Harriet Christie. Congratulations to you all.

And not forgetting our 4 legged friends, the BayRun’s “Fastest Dog in the Inner West” category was won by Copper, a two-year-old rescue Dalmatian, who led owner Michael McGuinness across the finish line in a respectable 24:10, 37 seconds, ahead of BayRun champion and favourite to win, Biscuit, whose record set in 2016 with owner Dani Andres still stands (23:28). Third place was won by Scout and owner Chris Pooley (24:52).

Congratulations to all of the winners and thank you to every single entrant for helping make it such a fabulous day!

BayRun is excited to be once again partnering with the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Make your event count by supporting remote Indigenous communities when you take part in the BayRun by raising funds while you race. Set up an Everyday Hero fundraising page and ask your friends, colleagues and family to support your efforts.

And don't forget to make a donation to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation when you register for your chosen BayRun event – we'll prompt you to dig deep for this worthy cause when you do! 

A word from our charity partner...

Our vision is equity of opportunity. Being able to read opens so many doors. But in very remote Indigenous communities, books are all too scarce and literacy levels are so much lower than anywhere else in Australia. 

Our mission is to make a difference to the lives of Indigenous families by not only gifting thousands of new culturally appropriate books – with a focus on early literacy and first language - but also by running programs to inspire the communities to tell and publish their own stories.
