The 44th Brooks PAYCE Sutherland2Surf 2015 Fun Run & Walk will be held on Sunday July 19 (race start at 8:00am). The race dates back to September 1972 when Wanda Surf Club decided to do a bit of fundraising. That year, 50 competitors took part. In 1997, for the 25th Jubilee race, 5000 entrants took part. Since, then the race has continued to grow in number and prestige as it attracts top level Australian and international competitors as a warm up to the City 2 Surf.
Runners are asked to assemble on the start line at Flora Street, Sutherland by 7.45am and ensure Bib Tags are attached on the front of shirts prior to entering the starting compound. For safety, walkers must start behind runners. If this is your first time in the race, it would be wise to stick to the side and towards the back of the line. The start will be very congested, so please keep a close eye on the competitors in front of you. If the pace is too fast, slowly make your way to the side of the road.
- Showers and changing facilities are available for both genders in the Club House.
- There are portaloos at the Start and Finish
- There are no toilets provided along the course.
- Stay Hydrated. Sydney Water will be providing water from their trailer and bottle refill units at the finish line. You can rehydrate by grabbing a cup of water or refilling your bottles. There will be also water stations along the course.
Rydges Cronulla on The Kingsway is a great place for drink, meal or snack and, of course, for all your accommodation needs.
