Walk, Wheel/Aid or Jog the City2Surf

Designed for absolute beginners, join us over six weeks to walk, wheel/aid or jog the City2Surf.  

Congratulations on making your decision to "have a go" for the City2Surf event on the 19th of March 2023. The UC Rec & Sport team are excited to support your first journey into the “possible”. We have designed a safe and achievable 6-week plan for those of you who are walkers, wheelers/aiders, joggers, and beginner runners. This is going to be fun and safe for you to get moving, get outside and have the support you need to make that first step. The main goal for all three groups is to finish the event, enjoy the experience of the atmosphere of the day and to use the 6-week programme to kick start something for health, wellbeing, and your life. We have also designed it for those people who may have disabilities or on wheels.
