The City2Surf is one of the great local events in Sydney aimed at fundraising over $5 million for over 900 different charities.
Participants can choose to walk or run the 14km long course and tens of thousands of people participate in the event every year; including runners, walkers, families, kids and large corporate groups.
The City2Surf has been running since 1971 and has grown over the year to include thousands of participants. Raise money for charity by taking part in the race or as part of a fundraising team.
The Course starts in Hyde Park in the CBD and runs downhill and through Kings Cross, up “Heartbreak Hill” and past beautiful ocean views. The race finishes at the famous Bondi Beach. There are 6 water stations on the 14km course and water is also available at the start and finish. There are also first aid stations located at the start and end of the race.
Participants are required to enter online prior to the event and event entries will close at 5pm the day before the event. You cannot enter the event on the day. You will be posted your race bib prior the event as well as your entry ticket. Athletes who pre-qualify (based on time) will be seeded and placed at the front of the start line amongst other elite athletes. Other participants will be categorised by their likely finish times, with slower participants starting later.
Prams are permitted, but for safety reasons will be required to start at the rear of the race. All finishers will receive a finisher’s medal and downloadable finisher’s certificate.
So come and get involved in the City2Surf and raise money for some worthy charities whilst also having fun!
