UOW City2Surf Team

2017 UOW City2Surf Team

21 Years of Running

The University of Wollongong has a long history supporting the City2Surf event and 2017 makes this our 21st year of supporting the event with a UOW City2Surf Team.

The City2Surf started in 1971 with about 1500 participants. Over the years it has grown to be one of the largest mass participation fun runs in the world and is now an iconic event with more than 85,000 participants. The first University of Wollongong team ran in 1997 with a team of approximately 100 members and by 2007 had over 400 participants.

The UOW City2Surf team attracts staff, students, alumni and community members and is a great community engagement exercise.
