Acknowledged as one of Australia's premier marathons, is the City to Surf, a yearly event held in August and hosted by the Sun-Herald, starting from Hyde Park in the city to the famed beach front of Bondi.

The idea of the race came via a note from Fairfax's USA correspondent, who sent a newspaper clipping in 1970, about 'The San Francisco Bay to Breakers' to the editor of 'The Sun' newspaper, Jack Tier. In 1971 the first race, then known as 'The Sun City to Surf' was held with just over 2,000 entrants. The winner then was Ken Moore (male) from the USA and Beth Stanford (female) of New South Wales, Australia.

Today, the event is more than just a marathon, it is a 'fun run', with entrants from across the entire spectrum of humanity, including not only men and women, but young and old, as well as entrants from Sydney’s diverse ethnic community, visitors both local and from overseas.

More information can be had from the website: City2Surf
