City2Surf

The Avaloq Team in Australia will participate in the City2Surf (or City to Surf). It is a popular road running event held annually in Sydney, Australia – covering a 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) course. The event is a "fun run" as well as a race, attracting both serious runners and community participants who can choose to run or to walk. The largest timed running race in the world, the event attracts more than 80,000 entrants who start in staggered groups based on previous running times and early entry.

 

The 14 km route taken by the participants commences in the city centre of Sydney and passes through the suburbs of East Sydney, Kings Cross, Rushcutters Bay, Double Bay, Rose Bay, Vaucluse, Dover Heights and the famous Bondi Beach. The most difficult part of the course is "Heartbreak Hill" at the halfway mark, a 2 km long steep ascent from Rose Bay to Vaucluse along New South Head Road.

 

Features en route include many amateur bands performing along the suburban roads, and many City2Surf participants dressed in novelty themed costumes.
