August 8 2010 is the City2Surf!

City2Surf 2010

An amazing 14k run through the heart of Sydney, starting from Hyde Park and finishing in Bondi. Known for the famous “heart-break” hill (at the half way point) and fun party atmosphere, this is one run not to be missed. There are participants who dressed up in costumes and there are live performances and crowds cheering you on encouraging you throughout the run! Definitely up there as one of the most memorable runs for most of us here in Wollongong Fitness.

Celebrate 40 years of fun, fitness and fundraising by being part of the worlds largest run and Sydney’s favourite sporting event, The Sun-Herald City2Surf presented by Westpac on Sunday, August 8.

For information about the route, there’s a google map display of the route.
