Nearly 80,000 people have flooded the streets of Sydney to undertake the 48th annual City2Surf fun run.
The 14km race from Sydney’s Hyde Park to Bondi Beach saw people from all over the globe take place in what has become the world’s biggest fun run.
Patches of blue skies and 12C temperatures greeted the runners, who gathered at the starting line on Sunday morning.
Ben St Lawrence was the first to cross the finish line, with Ellie Pashley being the first female to complete the trek.
St Lawrence, a 36-year-old Australian Olympian, had to sprint the last few metres to beat out fellow Australian Liam Adams for his second title.
Thousands of runners completed the race, managing to raise nearly $5million for more than 1000 charities.
Superheroes, minions, pirates and streakers were among the hilarious costumes people adorned for the race.
