The Sunday Age City2Sea presented by Westpac is the 5th and final event in the new 2015 Run Out Loud Fitness and Music Series.


The Melbourne event is open to everyone from elite runners, joggers and walkers to wheelchairs, pram-pushers and children. Runners will be joined by Westpac Ambassador Rachel Finch on the course to generate motivation and energy along the way.


Following the success of the event in 2014, which saw more than 11,000 participants cross the finish line, the iconic 15km course will return once again, alongside the shorter 5km course.


Both races begin on St Kilda Road, and participants are treated to impressive scenery along the Botanic Gardens and through Albert Park, for the 15km course.

Finishing on Pier Rd alongside Catani Gardens, participants will be greeted at the finish line with live entertainment from International DJ Hot Dub Time Machine.


Since 2011 the Sunday Age City2Sea presented by Westpac has raised over $1 million dollars for charity. With more than 500 charities to choose from, organisers encourage participants to setup their own online fundraising for a charity of their choice.




Summer is just around the corner and to celebrate the warmer months Sydney-siders are encouraged to lace up their running shoes, pick out a costume, grab the family and get involved in The Sun-Herald Summer Starter presented by Bodypass.


Formally Run Sydney, the event will see over 5,000 participants of all fitness levels taking to the 5km and 10km courses around Sydney’s iconic Olympic Park and surrounds.


Fifteen years on from the Sydney Olympics, both courses will trace around Sydney Olympic Park before finishing at Cathy Freeman Park.


Costumes are encouraged for this family-friendly event where the aim of the game is fun for all ages - and under-fives enter for free!

A finish line festival in Cathy Freeman Park with music and entertainment will be the perfect setting to celebrate the completion of the run, with participants encouraged to bring a picnic and spend time with family and friends.


For those participants looking for a little extra help to get their fitness goals in check this event will again provide the opportunity to raise funds for the charity of their choice. The Sun-Herald Summer Starter hopes to raise over $200,000 for more than 500 charities this year.
