Christchurch city to surf

Carrying a bit too much weight after the holiday season? 2017 is here, and it is time to beat the feet and work off some of that Christmas stuffing. Looking to re-energise yourself? Then why not set yourself a goal and enter the Christchurch City to Surf event Sunday March 19th 2017.

The thing we love about the city2surf is that you can run it, you can walk it, and you can choose your distance. This means it is great for all levels and ages to get out there, get moving, and have some fun.
