The City2South Wants YOU!

Brisbane Times City2South Presented by Westpac

 

In 2014, we announced the launch of a new 5km course; perfect for families and first-time runners looking to join in the fun of the Brisbane Times City2South presented by Westpac.  Participants will take in spectacular riverside scenery, before joining the 14km course and finishing in a recovery zone with a festival atmosphere in Musgrave Park.
