Entries are now open for the annual ICC Surf to City on March 8, 2020.

Sponsored by the Invercargill City Council and presented by Sport Southland, the ICC Surf to City is Southland’s largest participation event.

The full 12km course starts at Oreti Beach and finishes at Queens Park, but there are also 6km and 3km options to suit all abilities and ages.

Sport Southland chief executive Brendon McDermott said the long-running event had become part of the fabric of the province.

“The ICC Surf to City is one of those great events where you can’t help but walk away with a smile on your face,” he said.

“I can’t think of another event which brings the community together in quite the same way as the ICC Surf to City. We see people of all ages and backgrounds taking part as individuals, work groups or families, and loving it. The atmosphere at the Queens Park finish, with the music and food and activities for the kids, is something special.”

While the ICC Surf to City is already the largest participation event of its kind in Southland, regularly attracting more than 3000 participants, McDermott would love to see it get even bigger.

“It would be great to share this event with even more people,” he said.

“We work hard to ensure that as many people as possible are able to take part. We offer a range of distances. We welcome runners, walkers, bikers, pram-pushers, scooters – you name it; and we try and keep the cost as low as possible.”

The ICC Surf to City was also a great event to partner with the Invercargill City Council on, McDermott said.

“Being active is about so much more than being physically fit. It’s about helping to build communities which are resilient, positive and engaged, and the Invercargill City Council gets that,” McDermott said.

“Working with the ICC, this event has evolved into a truly family-friendly occasion which the city is justifiably proud of.”
