Who organises the Bennelong Bridge Run and where do the profits go? The Bennelong Bridge Run is brought to you by Steph and Glen, two local passionate runners. This event isn’t designed to make money rather it is a community fun run, but unfortunately in the day and age of insurances, road closures and other costs we are charging a minimal entry fee to cover our costs. Profits are donated charity, listed in our website. What sponsorship opportunities are available for 2020? All sponsorship enquiries should be sent to email@example.com. Can I get involved without running? Yes we would love you to come volunteer. It should be a great event with lots going on, and it would be a great way to give back to the community while having fun. If you want to volunteer then feel free to contact us.
