Congratulations SUSS City2Surf Crew 2014!

Congratulations to everyone who ran in the City2Surf this weekend. The team has raised over $8,000 for Interplast so far with a little more time to go. We had a great crew with 51 entrants making it all 14km from the city to Bondi. Our top 3 runners totalled a time of 3 hours and 9 seconds, placing SUSS 86th as a team.

The winner of the SUSS City2Surf Shield for the fastest time run in the team scrubs goes to Harry Narroway, coming in at 63:18. Two more notable achievements go to Robbie Stuart for the fastest overall time with 54:33, and fastest girl, Simoné Visagie, with a time of 73:58.

Well done everyone, a fantastic effort. Particularly, a big thanks to Matt Georgiades for organising everyone and getting the fundraising kicking.

Let’s see if we can beat some more records next year!
