In its 50th year, the City2Surf will be completely different from any year previous. Along with almost every other event that was scheduled to take place in 2020, the City2Surf has been forced to adapt to the world we live in and has announced the run will now be virtual. So what does this mean?
Rather than winding through the city and ending up at Bondi Beach, entrants will have to plan their own routes in their own areas. Entrants will download an official tracking app and complete a 14 kilometre run between 6am and 6pm on October 18.
Similarly, the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge announced yesterday that the 5 kilometre charity run will be virtual. Unlike the City2Surf, participants will have from October 8 to October 22 to complete the challenge.
Last year, Lotus People took part in both the City2Surf and the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge as a team. There is no doubt that the atmosphere surrounding both events will be greatly missed but we will be looking to each other for that motivation!
Registration for both are now open.
