Sydney not only has the Scallop Theater, Vivid Sydney Lighting Festival or beautiful beaches but also exciting marathons. There is the participation of thousands of Australians, who are famous for being sports lovers.
City2Surf race is the largest race in the world. It is one of the many interesting tournaments to join if you have the opportunity to travel to Australia.
This year, the City2Surf 2020 tournament is expected to take place on August 9th. Although official information about the rounds, opening times and prizes have not been officially announced, there are many. Jogging lovers expressed their eagerness to get involved.
Launched in 1971, the City2Surf run is hosted by the Sun-Herald newspaper. And it became the annual event from there. City2Surf is a 14km long race from Hyde Park in downtown Sydney to the beautiful Bondi beach.
The route will usually start in downtown Sydney and go through the suburbs of East Sydney, Kings Cross, Rushcutter Bay, Double Bay, Rose Bay, Vaucluse, Dover Heights and finally Bondi Beach. The hardest part of the tournament was running halfway across Heartbreak Hill. This is a fairly steep stretch of 2 km from Rose Bay to Vaucluse along New South Head Road.
In 2010, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the event, the tournament was recorded as a record 80,000 runners. It became the largest running tournament in the world at that time. Over the years, the number of people who continue to participate is still maintained and tends to increase.
Last year, despite the cold weather of only about 10 degrees, City2Surf tournament has attracted nearly 90,000 registered participants. Sydney Street and Bondi Beach are as crowded as the festival with lots of contestants and enthusiastic supporters.
Many groups run wearing the same uniform or disguise in colorful, funny costumes. Many mothers and fathers also bring their children in strollers to join the race.
