From 168kg to an 88kg Running Machine

When I first ran Sydney’s City To Surf in 1977, I would rise early and my Dad drove me from our home in Beverly Hills into Town Hall & he dropped me off there and then waited for me to finish at Bondi.  I finished the race that year in the time of 73:46,...
My Dad, The Legend!

My Dad, The Legend!

by Deanna French Every 2nd Sunday of August for as long as I can remember, my family have known exactly where they will be.  That is, either running with Dad or waiting for him at North Bondi Surf Club. What an accomplishment, to have run every City2Surf!  Through the...

Paul Minton’s City2Surf Challenge

My involvement in the City to Surf began in 1979 after seeing an article in a magazine here in Melbourne. Since then I have done 31 Runs including 24 straight. In November 1979 I was hit by a car and received serious injuries; my left leg was broken so was my ankle. I...
