Sydney City2Surf Fun Run 2019

On 7th August five of us intrepid Y Striders set out for Sydney to participate in the 49th Sydney City2Surf Fun Run.  We were all competing in the 14 km run.

Kerrie T, Leonie H and Jennie T had previously participated in this run.   However, Pam and Kevin A were having their first experience with the Sydney City to Surf.

When we first arrived in Sydney the weather was cold and windy but there was no rain. This was definitely a positive.

Race day dawned cold and we joined more than 80,000 enthusiastic runners and walkers for the start.  The weather remained fine for the duration of the race.  It turned out to be ideal conditions for the Fun Run.

We were all pleased with our times.  Kerrie T achieved a Personal Best!  Well done Kerrie.

A relaxing spa was very welcome in the afternoon to ease our aching muscles. And some of us have already committed to returning to Sydney next year for the 50th Sydney City to Surf Fun Run.
