Westpac is proud to be back in 2018 to present The Sun-Herald City2Surf. Full of fun and activities for all participants, we can’t wait to see you at the World’s Largest Fun Run.
Since 1971 this iconic race has brought people together, from all walks of life – young and old, from elite runners to the everyday athletes. Whether you’re in SKINS or a gorilla suit, Westpac is here to help every step of the race.
Leave your wallet at home this City2Surf and pay for your post-run snack with Westpac PayWear. PayWear is a payment chip inserted into a Keeper attached to your existing watch or fitness band. It means your money is with you even if your phone, wallet or debit card isn’t. Order Westpac PayWear and receive a complimentary Keeper (conditions apply). Find out more.
Help takes you from start to finish
The City2Surf takes about 14,000 steps to complete and not all steps will be the same. There’ll be the hard steps, where you’ll wonder if you’ll cross the Finish line, and the easy ones, when you’re headed straight to Red Zone.
Help has your back. From the misting tunnel to our cheer squads, milestones will be celebrated, and once you cross the Finish line we will see you at Red Zone, where Westpac customers can relax with food, or a massage to help with recovery.
start line: westpac help crew
Keep an eye out for the Westpac Help crew in Hyde Park with all the kit you need to get on your way, from visors and sunscreen to the often forgotten safety pins and hair elastics.
Then, Westpac Yellow Group get ready to join in with the Westpac warm up kindly hosted by Westpac ambassador, Tom Williams.
The iconic Westpac Misting Tunnel is back at Lyne Park to give you some well needed refreshment before hitting Heartbreak Hill.
Keep your eyes and ears out for the Westpac acappella group, outside our Rose Bay branch who will be there to cheer you on with some motivational, glee-inspired tunes. Tell them your name for a personalised chant to really get you moving.
Then, as you near the end, the Westpac Last Blast will give you the final burst of energy to get you over the Finish line.
Join us at Red Zone to relax, refuel and refresh at the Finish line with complimentary food, drinks and massages. Visit us at City2Surf Expo for your VIP wrist band, or show us your Westpac PayWear, Westpac banking card or mobile app for access to both on the day.
