Run the City to Surf

City to Surf

Starting from humble beginnings back in 1971 the annual City to Surf fun run in Sydney has grown to become the must-do road running race in Australia, and the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere attracting over 50,000 participants each year.

The 14 kilometre (8.7 miles) run starts in the centre of Sydney near Hyde Park and finishes at Australia’s most famous beach, Bondi beach.

The race is open to all ages and levels of fitness. While some take the race very seriously, many participants make it a fun day out dressing up in themed costumes, stopping off at the many watering holes (pubs) along the way while enjoying the numerous amateur bands performing along the road as they run, walk or stroll to the finish line at Bondi Beach.
