City2Surf Course

The 2016 course will start in Hyde Park and follow the same route through to the world famous Bondi Beach, passing through the beautiful Eastern Suburbs of Sydney as it has done since the start line moved to College St in 1977. The course will retain its legendary 14km distance, however, the course finish for the 2016 event has been changed. Please see 2016 course map below.

Course Finish

In 2016, the City2Surf will see the first significant change to the course since 1977. As the event has grown into the world’s largest run, the organisers together with key stakeholders including the NSW Police, Waverley Council and Ambulance NSW, determined that the finish layout needed to be improved.

The organisers are always seeking ways to make the event experience better, and the course changes will eliminate a congestion issue and make it safer and easier for participants and spectators to leave the Bondi vicinity.

The new finish layout means that when runners head down Military Road from Dover Heights and reach Campbell Parade (opposite Ramsgate Avenue) they will run down the Western side. Runners will then continue to Curlewis Street, where they will turn anti-clockwise onto the Eastern side of Campbell Parade. Following this, they will head down to Queen Elizabeth Drive where they will turn right into the finish straight.

The course continues to cover 14km and the finish line remains on Queen Elizabeth Drive in front of the iconic Bondi Beach.
