“We have worked tirelessly with our partners, NSW Health, and the NSW Government to bring this incredible legacy event back to the people of Western Sydney,” said Peter Bromley NAB RunWest General Manager. “NAB RunWest 2021 will be run with extensive COVIDSafe procedures to ensure the safety of our participants and community, including limiting each course to 3,000 participants and volunteers.”
The 12km Fun Run will commence at Sydney Motorsport Park, before participants are treated to one of the music unique running courses in the world, winding into Sydney’s newest Zoo, Sydney Zoo to run past lions, elephants, giraffes and plenty of cute and cuddly animals. The course flows through Sydney’s biggest backyard, the Western Sydney Parklands, before reaching the finish line located at West HQ.
The NAB RunWest 4km Family Fun Run, starts at Blacktown International Sportspark and creates an unbeatable community atmosphere, championing inclusion for people of all abilities and fitness levels, from toddlers to grandparents, walkers to piggy-back riders, those in wheelchairs, those smashing personal goals and those pushed comfortably along in their prams all the way to West HQ.
The Hon Stuart Ayres MP, NSW Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney said that NAB RunWest is the ultimate feel-good experience and an event to be enjoyed year- after-year.
“NAB RunWest is an event for the whole community, bringing local Western Sydney residents, schools, community groups, friends and family members together to do something fun and active, with the opportunity to fundraise for important causes,” he said. “From the personal satisfaction of crossing the finish line, the health benefits of training and the ability to give back to the community through fundraising, there’s something for everyone to feel great about when you participate in NAB RunWest.”
NAB is proud to be the naming rights partner of NAB RunWest and to be supporting the community through Western Sydney’s biggest community fun run.
