Event Information and Registration

Be among the crowd on the starting line when our locals line up for the 2017 Lane Cove Fun Run.

Run with your family, friends and community through the beautiful streets of Longueville that will be closed for the duration of the event. The Lane Cove Fun Run is a community event designed for people of all ages and abilities.  You can sprint, run, jog or walk and babies in strollers are most welcome. Medals will be awarded for the fastest in each category over the 5km and 10km courses and the first three primary school age boys and girls in the 2km event.

You can choose to enter either the 2km LONGueville Family Dash (8:40am) the 5km event (7:40am) or the 10km event (7:30am.) We encourage all participants to enter into the FUN of the event, dress up, get your kids to dress up, dress up those strollers and dress up your dog! There are great prizes for the best fancy dress.

As a community event we encourage family entries. Mum, Dad, kids and grandparents can enter under the family price. Children under 5 and kids in strollers are free. However, if you would like a bib and official time for your little one you will need to register them. The family entry is the best value.

Parents who are accompanying children on the run need to pay an adult entry fee or enter as a family. You can select different events for different family members in the family entry. If you plan to run in the 10km or 5km event and then wish to join your family in the 2km event please purchase an additional 2km entry for $5.00. This ensures you receive official timing for both events and that we have an accurate understanding of the number of participants on the day. Please do not compete in the 2km event if you have not registered.
