Event Profile

The PAYCE Sutherland 2 Surf (PAYCE S2S) is an 11km fun run and walk from Sutherland to Wanda Beach, Cronulla. The event is in its 47th year and is the lead up to the City to Surf. Close to 6000 entrants either run or walk solo, or in a team and many enter to fundraise for a cause. For serious runners, the 200 fastest seeded runners will be automatically placed into the Brooks Pro-Sprint category and cash prizes are up for grabs for 1st to 3rd place getters male and female. For 16 years and under, you will automatically go into The Athlete’s Foot Youth (16 & Under) category where there are also cash or other prizes for 1st to 3rd place getters male and female.

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
