What’s On: City to Surf celebration hot spots

This will be Sydney Social’s fifth City 2 Surf and were really excited! We love the way that all the runners team together to spur each other on… Even when it comes to the notorious ‘heartbreak hill’.

Another aspect of City 2 Surf that cannot be ignored is the celebrations that take place following the 13k run from Sydney’s CBD to Bondi Beach!

Bondi is literally awash with runners, their supporters and a stonking great atmosphere! Here is a list of Sydney Social 101’s top picks to raise a glass (or ten) to the runners of City 2 Surf!
