More than 80,000 people took part in Sydney's annual City2Surf race on Sunday with runner Harry Summers winning his third event in a time of 40.05 minutes, just two seconds need to reach the record time.

Competitors find the most difficult part of the course a two kilometre steep incline called "Heartbreak Hill" at the halfway mark. The City2Surf started in 1971 and raises millions of dollars for various charities across Australia.  The course record to date is 40 minutes and three seconds set by Australian Steve Moneghetti in 1991. This is third win of Summers, winning in 2016 and 2017.
