The Bay Run

The Bay Run travels approximately 7 kms around the shores of the Iron Cove Bay and is one of the most popular harbourside tracks in Sydney, the Iron Cove 'Bay Run' is a social, family-friendly walk or run.

Following the entire natural course of the cove and never deviating more than 20 metres from the water, this flat, well-maintained track is also bicycle, pram and dog friendly, with lanes for walkers and cyclists clearly marked, where possible.

With the Iron Cove Bridges spanning the mouth of the cove, the Bay Run is an enclosed loop, meaning you can start and finish in exactly the same location. Popular places on the Leichhardt side to start and finish are King George Park, Leichhardt Park or Callan Park.
