Unofficially Special

When unstoppable meets immovable

It's a shakeout run and carb-loading kinda thang

If you ever watched Captain Planet as a kid you’ll know that by combining forces and working together to pool our collective energies, superhuman feats can be obtained (obviously).

On Friday the 5th of July an Unstoppable Force meets an Immovable Object. The Brave Slay Queens from SoSo’s Run Club are taking us Unofficial foreigners for a night on the town, beginning with a pre-marathon shakeout run at 5:30pm. The run starts at the famous Franc Jrs Pizzeria on Mermaid Beach with pizza slay-ces and bevvies to follow.

The combination of such phenomenal energies for a pre-send 5km and Unofficial x SoSo’s dinner date will have you carb-loading and ripping your best PB on the flattest global marathon circuit known to man.

Dinner date slots at Francs are booked on a first-come-first-served so be sure to express your interest via the form below. You will receive a confirmation email confirming receipt of your desired wine-and-dine time, and a follow-up email if your booking has been successful.

And leave your fat wallets at home (or maybe splurge on some Carbon-plated baddies), this ones on New Balance:

Time slots are as follows:
6:30 - 7:30pm (Early-to-bed Millennial Session)
7:30 - 8:30pm (Brave-late-nighter Session)

With love and speed,
Unofficial x SoSo’s

Absolutely, we’re just getting started. Community and culture come first so we’re airtight on what constitutes an Unofficial Run. If you think you suit the mould and want to host a run in a new location, please reach out. We’d love to meet you.

We started as a few mates who could barely run the length of the Harbour Bridge without stopping for a breather. Three turned into 5, and then an initial 10 who showed up week on week for a jog and a pastry. We wanted to push each other into places we didn’t think we were capable of with longer runs, hard workouts, and a well-caffeinated treat at the end. Turns out others resonated with the vibe – and here we are.

Don’t be nervous! We have people of all ages and paces running with us ranging from sub 4:30/km to well above 7:30/km and even a walking group. Check out our Instagram stories every Thursday when we invite newbies to weekly first-timers chats.

No matter where you are in the pack you’ll have someone to run alongside. We are frequently told that once we get running, it doesn’t feel overly busy.

Remember, nobody gets left behind.

You bet your sweet bippy. Stay tuned.

The run is roughly 6.5km with many shortcuts available if need be. We have a number of people who run the Harbour Bridge, walk back, and join us for coffee, which is roughly 2.5km.

The bigger the better, especially when people are looking to better themselves. We’re taking measures to ensure things flow as seamlessly as possible and to reduce our impact on the public. If you’re keen to grow, we’d love you to show.

We start and finish at Bradfield Park North in Milsons Point (that lovely grassy patch right under the bridge). We run south over the Harbour Bridge, up and over the Cahill Expressway, around the Sydney Opera House through Circular Quay, up The Rocks and back over the Harbour Bridge for a tasty pastry.

The run usually finishes between 6:45 and 7:00 am. If you’re just joining us for pastries and a chat, meet us at 7:00 🙂.
