Event Profile

The annual Brisbane Times City2South presented by Westpac is back and will take place on Sunday, June 4, 2017. New this year, there will be a 2 day lifestyle festival prior to the event which will include F45 outdoor training sessions, an outdoor cinema, live entertainment, food trucks, kids activities, yoga and more! Your supporters have the option of a 5km course; the perfect distance for new runners who are looking to challenge themselves. In addition, the 14km course will take your supporters from the Botanic Gardens, along Coronation Drive, through the University of Queensland and back through Highgate “Heartbreak” Hill. Taking advantage of the City2South is as easy as asking your supporters to run for you.

How to set up a City2South supporter page

Setting up an online supporter page in the City2South is easy – even if your organisation isn’t a featured charity.

Step 1: Register as an event participant online at the City2South official website.
Step 2: To fundraise for a non-featured charity, skip the charity selection part of the City2South registration.
Step 3: After completing the event registration form, follow the prompts to visit the City2South fundraising website.
Step 4: Sign up to create your personal City2South supporter page and select a non-featured charity to support.
Step 5: Personalise your page with a profile photo and tell everyone why you’re supporting your chosen charity.
Step 6: Share your unique supporter page link with your friends, family and colleagues via email and social media.

Asking your supporters to compete for you

It’s easy to make the most of the event opportunity. It all begins with asking your supporters to take part and support you by giving their effort and time. Make sure you ask:
  • Past supporters who have run, walked, ridden or swam for you previously
  • Both your one off and regular donors, by offering them another way they can support you with their effort
  • Your volunteers
  • Your charity’s staff

Setting up a charity team

Setting up a fundraising team is a great way to build a sense of community for all your supporters in the event. Once you’ve created your charity team, make sure you invite anyone supporting you in the event to join. Need help setting up a charity team? download our guide here.
