City2Sea of people

14 Nov 2011

City2Sea of people Image

The first ever Melbourne City2Sea fun-run saw a huge crowd descend on Southbank Boulevard for the start of the race during November.

13,500 people created a fantastic buzz of energy as they counted down to the start of the race, which was based on Sydney’s City2Surf.

Showing their commitment to fitness, competitors kicked off the race at 9am on a Sunday, making their way from Southbank down to St Kilda beach.

They were sent out onto the course by newly-crowned, three-time Hawaiian Ironman winner Craig Alexander.

Mr Alexander was thrilled to be involved in the race, telling the event’s website: “It’s a great privilege to be part of this fantastic community-focused event and I’m honoured to have been selected to officially start the first ever City2Sea.”

The 14km race was won by Steve Kelly, in a time of 43:43, while in the female category the winner was Kate Smyth in 49:56.

Raising money for charity, the overall tally was well above $400,000.
