The Sun-Herald City2Surf presented by Westpac has now been running for 46 years and is 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 1,500 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 City2Surf 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. Originally a 15km course, the 14km course of today has now become one of the most loved and largest community events in the world.
The Sun-Herald City2Surf presented by Westpac will be held on Sunday August 12, 2018
