City2Surf 2015 – FIT4Action
August 9, 2015 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 am
14km from the centre of Sydney to iconic Bondi Beach.
Since the beginning, 44 years ago, City2Surf has been wholly owned and organised by The Sun-Herald (formerly The Sun), a Fairfax Media publication.
History tells us that the inspiration for this great Event came via a note from Fairfax’s US correspondent, who sent a newspaper clipping in 1970 about the San Francisco Bay to Breakers to the editor of The Sun newspaper, Jack Tier.
From that internal memorandum The Sun City2Surf was born, albeit humbly, in 1971, with just over 2,000 entrants (only 2% of the field was female). In the years since it has been proven time and again that no other fun run in the Southern Hemisphere matches The Sun-Herald City2Surf presented by Westpac in terms of organisation or demographics. For the first time in the Event’s history women outnumbered men in the capacity field of 63,451 in 2006: it is truly a community Event attracting entrants from all walks of life and all ages.
