Our Course

City2Surf has one of the most iconic courses in the world. Experience the thrill of starting the 14km event in Australia's largest city in the middle of its bustling CBD before making your way to one of the world's most famous beaches - Bondi Beach.

The race starts at the intersection of Park Street and College Street before participants make their way downhill on William Street and head up through the Kings Cross Tunnel.

The course continues along New South Head Road winding through Rose Bay, then up the infamous "Heartbreak Hill" - the halfway point and one of the most scenic parts of the course.

Runners then turn the corner at Vaucluse onto Old South Head Road, then Military Road and down the hill as they take in breathtaking ocean views, before completing a turnaround at Curlewis Street, and crossing the finish line on Queen Elizabeth Drive at Bondi. 

Once you cross the finish line, don't forget to grab your Finisher's Medal and snap a selfie before heading to the event village to relax and recover.
