Dessert queen Anna Polyviou will put aside her rad high-tops and lace up her runners when she takes on the Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 5k along with OzHarvest Founder and CEO, Ronni Kahn to raise awareness and funds for OzHarvest, Australia’s leading food rescue charity.
Famous for her extraordinary dessert creations such as Anna’s Mess, a walk-in gingerbread house and her sell-out dessert degustation menus, Anna is full of good intentions to get fit but like all of us, life can get in the way. This year she has signed up for the 5k event to make sure there is a bit more balance in her busy weekly schedule.
“I love what OzHarvest stands for and am so excited to be joining the Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 5k to support them in continuing their good work. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday morning and I hope lots of Sydney people sign up,” said Anna Polyviou, Sweet Creator and OzHarvest Ambassador.
Ronni Kahn, OzHarvest CEO and Founder will also be taking part in the Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 10k.
“Running in the Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 10k gives me a wonderful opportunity to connect with so many passionate people raising money to support OzHarvest. Fundraising is so important as every dollar helps us to provide two meals to people in need, which is a great reason to get in your activewear and get outside!”
Sign up is now open for the Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 10k and 5k and will help OzHarvest, Australia’s leading food rescue charity raise vital funds to continue collecting quality surplus food that would otherwise end of in landfill, and distribute it free of charge to people who need it most.
Runners can join Anna and Ronni for either the 5k or the 10k event, which just one month before the spring classics, provides the perfect opportunity to check your preparation for a half marathon or marathon, or to strive for a new PB.
Starting at the historic Sydney Rocks area, the 10k course will be a one-lap loop which takes participants through Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour, Barangaroo parklands and The Rocks.
The Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 5k also allows participants to take in some of Sydney’s most beautiful sights with a flat, out and back course from the Rocks, along Hickson Rd allowing for stunning views of the Sydney Harbour, Harbour Bridge and the Opera House.
More than 6,000 other participants are expected to take advantage of the flat and fast course and enjoy the stunning scenery on a crisp Sydney morning.
Be sure to celebrate and relax after the event at the post-event recovery area located at the forecourt of the Overseas Passenger Terminal where the OzHarvest Food Truck will be serving up a delicious breakfast.
