City to Surf Repost

It's another beautiful day in Sydney, the day on which the City to Surf race is held. My blog stats tell me that people have been reading my post from City to Surf day last year. I am reposting that here so that others may read about my involvement in the race.

City to Surf

The Annual City to Surf race was held today in Sydney. The race from the CBD in Sydney to Bondi Beach has been held each year since 1971 and attracts thousands of fun runners as well as serious athletes.  I was prompted to share a few family snaps from races last century by a post my daughter just put on Facebook.

I have never donned my running shoes to take part in the race but have watched the finish from the comfort of the VIP stand at the finish line. I think I watched around ten of the races from there between 1980 and 1990. I know that 3/4 of the Geniaus offspring have taken part in the race, not sure about the youngest one but I only have photos of the elder two.
