Details

When: Monday evenings at 6.30pm

Where: Meet at the bottom of the Harbour Bridge stairs (see below).

Level: KR10K is an intermediate level run. If you are a beginner, we recommend getting comfortable running the KR Classic before you attempt KR10K.

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 KR Classic.

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:

Updated May 2019: ‘Double Stargazer’ version

  • Run across the Harbour Bridge, north to south.
  • Run down the Harbour Bridge stairs, and turn left onto Cumberland Street and follow the road
  • Turn left onto Lower Fort St and continue for about 400m
  • Turn left onto Argyle St
  • Turn left onto George St (The Rocks)
  • Cross over George St and turn right into Hickson Road
  • Follow Hickson Road until you reach the first entry point to Pier 8/9; turn right into that entry point
  • Run around Pier 8/9
  • From Pier 9, turn right onto Hickson Road/Towns Place and run toward Barangaroo Reserve (Wulagui Walk)
  • After about 200m, turn left onto Boot Boot path and run the length of the loop around the Stargazer Lawn
  • When you reach the beginning of Boot Boot path again, turn left onto Wulagui Walk again
  • Run as far as you can until the end of Wulagui Walk and back to the entry to Barangaroo Reserve
  • On the way back, do another ‘short lap’ of Boot Boot path (the Stargazer Lawn) and resume along Wulagui Walk
  • Run around Pier 8/9 again and continue along Hickson Rd
  • Turn right at the Crushed Car roundabout on Hickson Road and go up Pottinger Stret Hill
  • Turn left onto Windmill St and then right onto Lower Fort St
  • Turn right on Argyle St and then left up the Watson Rd ramp
  • Continue up the Watson Rd ramp and then run down into the Harbour Bridge 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.
