Our Story

Over the last 51 years City2Surf has transformed from a local road race into the world’s largest fun run and a bucket list event for Sydneysiders, along with thousands of participants from across the country and around the world.

Whether you walk, jog or run the famous 14km course from Hyde Park to Bondi Beach, City2Surf is all about hitting the streets and having fun with your family, friends and thousands of others while also raising an incredible amount of money for charity.

Maybe you’ve raced every year (shout out to our Legends!), or love the thrill of racing or dressing up (we’re looking at you Gorillas!) ..... or maybe you want to experience the energy and excitement of City2Surf for the very first time – whatever your why, City2Surf is about YOU... doing it your way.
