Each year in August, Sydneysiders take to the streets en masse and rush to the sea. This winter migration is called the City to Surf or City2Surf . This year, 65 000 people of all ages in red caps felt the urge to run. I found a fantastic vantage point to view the race start, perched up on a fence in the middle of William Street. Can you imagine how it feels to see thousands of people rush towards you? I remained trapped on my refuge island for 20 mns, so dense was the flow ! Tomorrow, I'll show you the other end of the race, in Bondi Beach. Tip: click on the photo to enlarge it, it's the only way to fully appreciate it.
