Balmoral Burn

Sydney’s Steepest Hill Run

Event Creator, Phil Kearns AM, came up with the idea of running up Awaba Street as a thank you to the Royal North Shore Hospital after his son Finn received emergency care for suspected meningococcal. Now in its 19th year, this annual community event is a fun run (or walk) up one of the steepest streets in Sydney.


Participants can conquer the hill in various age category races, kids and family races…even with the family pet! The Elite Invitational and Para Burn are fantastic viewing, not to mention the corporate team relays. For those looking for an extra challenge, why not try our Hill of Hurt; an obstacle course up the hill! Participate or take a spot on the hill or in the park and watch the action unfold.


The Burn is for everyone and benefits us all. So be part of it on Sunday the 26th May!"
