Thousands of people took part in this year’s ICC Surf to City, running, walking, or cycling their way to Invercargill’s Queen’s Park.

The largest event on the Sport Southland calendar, this year’s event involved about 3000 participants, who took part in 12km, 6km, or 3km options.

Those taking part in the 12km section battled an easterly breeze at Oreti Beach, which kept temperatures chilly, but they soon warmed up as they got going on their journey.
The 6km category set out from the intersection of Stead St and Marama Ave South, while the 3km entrants made their way from Bond St.

Sport Southland chief executive Brendon McDermott said it had been fantastic to see so many families and individuals getting out and about and active together.
“We’ve had a fantastic turnout, the weather has been awesome, and the atmosphere through the whole event has just been brilliant.”

 

A big thankyou also went to all the event sponsors, he said.

Invercargill City Council deputy mayor Rebecca Amundsen, who presented the prizes, said she was thrilled to see so many people enjoying not only the fantastic event, but also the beauty and atmosphere of Queen’s Park.

The event also coincided with the launch of Parks Week, with people encouraged to get out and about and discover the city’s many parks during the coming week.
