#KR10K (Monday 10 km)

Details

When: Monday evenings at 6.30pm
Where: Meet at the bottom of the Harbour Bridge stairs (see below).

Course description

Known as #KR10K, the Monday Night 10 km run is an ideal training run. In early 2017, Kirribilli Runners added this longer workout to their regular routine, which before then consisted only of the Thursday night 6 km run.

Directions

The route is essentially an ‘out and back’ to Barangaroo; however, to keep it interesting, we have made the way home different to the outbound journey. It might seem a little complicated at first, but once you’ve completed the circuit once, we’re sure you won’t lose your way. Here are our detailed directions:

  • Run across the Harbour Bridge, north to south.
  • Run down the Harbour Bridge stairs, and turn left onto Cumberland Street and follow the road
  • Continue right around the George Street bend and enter the path into the Dawes Point Reserve.
  • Follow the path down to Hickson Road (at the foreshore) and turn left
  • Continue along Hickson road until you reach pier 2 of the Walsh Bay piers.
  • Run the full length of all the piers: piers 2/3, piers 4/5, and piers 8/9.
  • At the end of the last pier (pier 9), turn right onto Towns Place and continue through to the Barangaroo Reserve
  • Follow the Barangaroo path, through the construction pathway, until you get to the Hickson Rd pedestrian crossing; then turn around
  • Retrace your steps and run all the length of all the piers again
  • At the end of the pier 2, cross over the top of Hickson Road (the squashed car roundabout) and run up Pottinger Street hill (a feature of Sydney’s SMH Half Marathon).
  • Turn left on Windmill St, then right onto Lower Fort St
  • Turn right at Argyle St and then left to enter Watson Road Hill.
  • Continue up Watson Rd and run down into the pedestrian tunnel to make your way back up the stairs and onto the Harbour Bridge.
  • Push hard for the final 1,500 metres home!

Strava leaderboard

We’ve created a Strava segment for the course, and it now has a very active Leaderboard. Personal records are run regularly!

Where we meet

6.30pm at the steps leading up to the Harbour Bridge pedestrian path, Milsons Point.

Kirribilli is on the traditional land of the Cammeraygal people. The name Kirribilli was probably derived from the Aboriginal word kiarabilli, which means “good fishing spot.” Kirribilli Runners acknowledges the traditional custodians of the country on which we gather and run, as well as our responsibility to respect and care for country, people, and spirit.
