Looking to challenge yourself this winter? Or just looking to participate in a fun run for a good cause? Then come and participate in the Sun-Herald City2Surf.
The Sun-Herald City2Surf is the world's largest timed running event, having had more than 80,000 participants in recent years. It's a 14 kilometre course from East Sydney to Bondi Beach in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs and is suitable for profesional and amateur runners alike.
If you're looking to stay in Sydney after your run, or looking support some family and friends who are doing the run this year, come check out the deals World Blue's got during that time. Whether you're looking for luxury comfort after your race or looking for something more low-key, have a look at the wide range of hotel rooms that World Blue has to offer.
The City2Surf starts from Hyde Park and winds through the streets of Darlinghurst, Rose Bay. Dover Heights and Bondi. It's a fairly challenging course, with a number of hills and troughs being present throughout this annual run's route. Watch out for so-called 'heartbreak hill,' at about the course's half-way point, which is challenging for experienced runners and amateurs alike.
Runners of the course are well supported, with drink stations and medical staff located at regular intervals on the course. There is also an expo at the end of the course for all participants, which includes food and rehydration stalls. It's a fantastic day for the whole family, and young and old alike participate in the run annually.
So come and join in on this annual event, and be part of the largest timed running event in the world. And while you're here, come check out the deals World Blue has for hotels in Sydney and beyond.
