Event Profile

The Sunday Age City2Sea presented by Westpac is the sister event to the world’s largest fun run, The Sun-Herald City2Surf in NSW. Your supporters have the choice of participating in either the 5km or 15km course which both cover some of Melbourne’s greatest landmarks before a spectacular finish on the beach in St Kilda.

*If event registration is not yet open you can still start fundraising! Simply set up your City2Sea Team Page using the guide below and start recruiting team members. Once registration is open just make sure to let your team know they still need to register for the event.

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
We have email templates to help you ask your supporters to compete.

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.
