5.0Did the 14k in 2019
Love the city 2 surf. Have noticed it is getting bigger every year but is still well organised. Transportation to and from the event is simple and cost included. Bonus ! Plenty of options for food etc at end and entertainment on the way is adequate. All round great event considering the crowds and logistics.
