Run for the Herd – City 2 Surf


City2Surf, Sunday, 11th August

This year we’re aiming to get 500 runners to take on City2Surf with us, as we aim to raise $100,000 which allow 5,000 young people to experience a batyr@school program, and ensure they are engaged in positive conversations about mental health, and empowered to reach out for support when needed.

Want to step up the challenge?
If you commit to raising $500 for batyr, you can apply here to be one of our Charity Superstar runners. You’ll get a free entry, a start in the special start wave, a personalised bib, along with our other fundraising merch incentives. You’ll have to be quick though as there are limited spots!
