Register For the 2018 City2Surf
If momentum for your new year's resolution has started to wane, the Sun Herald's City2Surf might keep you motivated.
There are just over 100 days to prepare for the 14-kilometre city run. In its 48th year, this annual city run from Hyde Park to Bondi Beach raises money and awareness for Cure Brain Cancer. Last year more than $300,000 was donated to the foundation, whose mission it is to increase five-year survival to 50 per cent by 2023. Runners can raise money for a charity of their choosing, with City2Surf hoping to raise $5 million this year for over 900 charities.
On August 12 more than 80,000 people will run in the event. The event came about when a newspaper clipping of the San Francisco Bay to Breakers 1970 run landed on the desk of Jack Tier, the then editor of The Sun newspaper. From its humble beginnings in 1971 with only 1500 entrants, The City2Surf is now considered one of the world’s best races.
If you fancy your chances of raising more than $1000 then sign up to run as a charity superstar. You’ll be positioned at the start and have access to training support, a running vest and a ticket to the exclusive post-race function in the Cure Brain Cancer marquee.
