Fiona Falkiner doesn't like to shy away from challenges after her 30kg loss on TV show -The Biggest Loser' and her latest foray into the unknown is taking on her first ever fun run - the Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 10k on Sunday 9 July.
Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 10k ambassador Fiona Falkiner says she is looking forward to the challenge of something new, mixing up her normal training routine and having a goal to work towards.
'Although I think of myself as fit and athletic, I definitely don't think of myself as a runner so if I can give it a go, anyone can," said Fiona.
'My usual training routine includes high intensity training, yoga and swimming - I am excited to be changing things up a bit and incorporating some more running into my weekly routine to get ready for the event.
'The course is flat and picturesque so the views of the stunning Sydney Harbour sights will be a welcome distraction as I take on this new challenge. I am looking forward to experiencing the camaraderie that fun runs are known for and getting to run alongside thousands of others all headed for the finish line."
Starting and finishing in Sydney's historic Rocks area, the Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 10k takes in the spectacular Sydney Harbour and its surrounding areas, providing a real fast and flat course.
The 10k course is a one lap loop which takes participants through Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour, Barangaroo parklands and The Rocks.
A 5k event is also staged on the same morning and starts in The Rocks. Participants also 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.
Both events finish alongside the Overseas Passenger Terminal with a sparkling harbour finish line.
Runners and walkers are invited to celebrate and relax after their event at the post event recovery area located at the forecourt of the Overseas Passenger Terminal - just past the spectacular harbour side finish line.
