  • The SUN-HERALD City2Surf Race

    12 August, 2018

    The Sun-Herald City2Surf presented by Westpac has now been running for 46 years and is owned and organised by The Sun-Herald (formerly The Sun), a Fairfax Media publication. History tells us that the inspiration for this great event came via a note from Fairfax’s US correspondent, who sent a newspaper clipping in 1970 about the San Francisco Bay to Breakers to the editor of The Sun newspaper, Jack Tier. From that internal memorandum The Sun City2Surf was born, albeit humbly, in 1971, with just over 1,500 entrants (only 2% of the field was female).

    In the years since it has been proven time and again that no other fun run in the Southern Hemisphere matches the City2Surf in terms of organisation or demographics.

    For the first time in the event’s history women outnumbered men in the capacity field of 63,451 in 2006: it is truly a community event attracting entrants from all walks of life and all ages. Originally a 15km course, the 14km course of today has now become one of the most loved and largest community events in the world.

    The reputation of this uniquely Sydney event has grown year on year and the event is widely recognised as a ‘bucket-list’ item for serious runners and adventure lovers around the world. The Telegraph listed the event as one of the 16 Great Running Races Around the World, whilst Runner’s World lists the event in their 20 Races To Do Before You Die. Runtastic counts the event amongst it’s list of the World’s Most Extraordinary Races and Running Shoes Guru lists the event as one of the Top Ten Running Races In The World. In each of these lists, the City2Surf was the only Australian event to be featured.

  • Oktoberfest

    21 September, 2018

    The Oktoberfest is a sixteen-day festival held each year in Munich, Bavaria, Germany during late September (and running to early October). It is one of the most famous events in the city and the world's largest fair, with some six million people attending every year, and is an important part of Bavarian culture. 

    However, you don't need to fly to the other side of the world to enjoy Germany's celebration of beer. Don your Lederhosen and Dirndl and celebrate like the Bavarians do - with big steins of beer

    It's Germany's biggest festival but can be enjoyed right here in Sydney, running over 16 days and attracting an astounding six million people to Munich, Bavaria. Sydney's Oktoberfest celebrations are slightly smaller but no less authentic, centred round our German beer house, the Löwenbräu Keller, and the five Bavarian Bier Cafés peppered around the city (not surprising considering the tradition began in Munich, Bavaria).

    But remember, it's not just any beer: it's bier, and has travelled all the way from Munich's greatest bier houses (there are six), who each year brew their special Oktoberfestbier, a staple of the annual celebrations since 1818.

    Locally, the Löwenbräu Oktoberfestbier is available at Löwenbräu Keller, while a rotating roster of brewery-fresh Spaten Oktoberfestbier, Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier, Paulaner Oktoberfestbier and Löwenbräu Oktoberfestbier will be ready to wet whistles at the five Bavarian Bier Cafes.

    Continue the German theme with your tucker. Löwenbräu Keller will be serving Hofbräu Haus goulash with bread dumplings and oven-roasted pork knuckle with sauerkraut, Löwenbräu bier and mashed potato.
    Prost!
