|TeamTAD after finishing the 14km course of the 2008 City2Surf.
After weeks of training, the four members of TeamTAD braved the chilly Sunday morning on August 10, and joined 70,000 people to compete in the annual City2Surf Fun Run.
The team members, Tara Wilson, Neale Oakes and sisters Emily and Natalie Peterson appealed to family and friends to sponsor their 14km trek from the heart of the city to Bondi Beach.
This year’s Sun-Herald City2Surf introduced ChampionChip technology to electronically time each runner and making it the biggest chipped race in the world.
While they all manage to complete the course in just over 2 hours, the winner of race, Martin Dent crossed the Bondi finish line with a time of just 41.12 minutes. It was also the first time an Australian runner has won the 14 kilometre race since 1997. Rebecca Lowe was the women’s champion in a time of 47.18 minutes.
Jana Rawlinson officially started the record field of 70,000 runners for the 38th Sun-Herald City2Surf at 9am near Hyde Park.
TeamTAD managed to raise $435 for TAD, contributing to the total Charity Challenge effort of almost $1.25 million for charities throughout Australia.
Congratulations to TeamTAD.
