About the course:
The City2Surf is 14km in distance starting from Hyde Park in Sydney’s CBD, at the intersection of Park St and College St. The course commences on a down hill on William St and heads up through the tunnel at Kings Cross. It continues along New South Head Rd through Rose Bay, then up the notorious "Heartbreak Hill" (the halfway point) and also the most scenic parts of the course. The course then turns the corner at Vaucluse, onto Old South Head Rd, then Military Rd and down the hill with ocean views, before completing a turn around at Curlewis st, into the finish line at the world famous and spectacular Bondi Beach. The City2Surf finish line is located on Queen Elizabeth Drive, adjacent to the children’s playground, north of the Bondi Pavilion, with runners finishing in a south bound direction.
The 14-kilometre route from the city's CBD through to Bondi Beach was set in 1971, with just over 1,500 entrants competing. All Participants of this amazing event have so far raised around $4,407,137 million for over 950 charities (City2Surf).
