Über Perth City to Surf Marathon
The City to Surf for Activ is Activ’s major fundraising event. Now in its 42nd year, it has become the second largest officially timed race in the Southern Hemisphere with over 50,000 participants taking part in the series in 2013. The much loved Perth event has now evolved into an entire City to Surf for Activ Series with events in Karratha, Geraldton, Albany and Busselton being launched in 2013.
For 42 years the Perth City to Surf has been an icon of the Western Australian sporting calendar, capturing the hearts of tens of thousands of people. The state government and event stakeholders fully endorse this event and have been helping to promote its virtues as a charity fundraising event, as well as the biggest community sporting event in the state, for many years. Their ongoing support helps to foster an event that is the envy of all with respect to the goodwill it creates within the broader community of Western Australia.
The traditional 12km event has evolved over the years and the carnival now includes a Marathon, Half Marathon, 12km run/walk and the 4km run/walk/wheelchair. The City to Surf for Activ is truly a unique running carnival and one that will remain on the WA sporting calendar for many generations to come.
The Chevron City to Surf Perth has a 42km marathon, 21km half marathon, 12km, 4km fun run and walk events and a 4km wheelchair event.
It is run annually on the last Sunday in August and attracts over 40,000 participants each year. The event has a festival atmosphere at both the start in Perth City and even more so at the finish at City Beach overlooking the sparkling the Indian Ocean.
This event is part of the WA City to Surf series.
