Sydney’s fun run popularly known as the city to surf is run from the centre of Sydney to the east of Bondi Beach, a distance of 14km. Some go for fun, while others have the more serious goal of winning, or at least of testing themselves to see if they come in ahead of last year’s time. With around 80,000 participants the fun run is exceeding its popularity each year. Still others go just as a way to give to charity, which is the main aim of the run, after all.
How you train for the city to surf will depend on your goals. If you want to win, your training schedule will necessarily be harder than if you just want to complete the course without embarrassment. Every run you do, whether training or competing, should begin with a warm up and end with a cool down.
