Sydney Marathon

Run the
Sydney Marathon with Dream Travel!

Come to sunny Sydney and run the 2024 Sydney Marathon with Dream Travel!  This will be our inaugural year selling this prestigious marathon that will hopefully be a World Marathon Major by 2025!  Speaking of which, anyone who runs the 2024 Sydney Marathon and crosses the finish line will be guaranteed an entry into the 2025, 2026 or 2027 Sydney Marathon! This is critical as once Sydney becomes a World Marathon Major, it’ll be very difficult to gain entry otherwise! This is your way of securing a guaranteed entry if Sydney becomes the 7th Abbott World Marathon Major!

Stephen from Dream Travel will be on location for the entire marathon weekend.

As the Sydney Marathon does not refund or defer guaranteed entries, our policy is as follows: If we can resell your package, the following fees will apply:

  • 15% of your payment amounts if cancelling 120 days or more prior to registration closing.
  • 25% of your payment amounts if cancelling between 7 and 119 days prior to registration closing.
  • 50% of your payment amounts if cancelling 6 days or less prior to registration closing.
  • 100% of your deposit and payment amounts if cancelling after registration closes or at any time if we’re unable to resell your package.

The difference between what you paid, and the fee listed above will be held as a credit for you for 24 months from the time you made your last payment for this particular package. Credits may only be used for events listed on our website.


Each year we have many people cancel due to unforeseen circumstances who did not purchase our travel insurance meaning they end up losing a portion or all of their package amount.  Under no circumstances does the Sydney Marathon permit postponing your marathon if you need to cancel, so protect yourself and your money by purchasing travel insurance through ManuLife.
With our insurance you will be able to cancel for insurable reasons as well as running injuries while training and we also sell a Cancel For Any Reason policy (insurance must be purchased within 48 hours of your initial payment or deposit).  We offer various other insurance packages including Cancellation, Interruption, Medical and Baggage. For full details on coverage, please click here: Manulife Financial.

In order to ensure that we link your insurance with your package, please use the following information when purchasing insurance:

We highly recommend that you land in Sydney at least a couple of days prior to Race Weekend so that you can get over jetlag and the time difference.  Remember, you also have to go to the race expo to collect your bib!

Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights are included in your package, but you can add additional nights with us.  The sooner you book, the better as hotels will sell out and prices will increase.


Are these prices in AUD or CAD?
All prices for this event are listed in CAD.

Can I stay at another property?
As we have a contract with the Sheraton Grand Sydney Hyde Park, we are unable to offer you a different property for the main three nights that are included.

Can I change which three nights are included?
Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights are included as every runner must go to the race expo in person and there won’t be time to finish the marathon, return to the hotel and change before checking out.  That said, we can’t change the three included nights.

Can I book additional nights at the same hotel?
Yes, assuming the hotel isn’t sold out, we can add additional nights to your stay.  Prices are listed above in the Pricing section.

What kind of weather can I expect on race day?
Typical weather in Sydney in September means an average low of 11 degrees Celsius and an average high of 21. Perfect for running!

Can you help me find a same-sex roommate?
We can definitely try and find you a same-sex roommate, but we can’t guarantee it.  Let us know as early as possible for the best chances.  Please note that if you request a roommate, you can’t bring one with you.

Do you have triple or quadruple rates?
Let us know your needs and we’ll get you a rate.
