front runners & fun runners
Westpac is proud to be the presenting partner of The Sunday Age City2Sea in 2013 for the third year in a row.
Our involvement with the sister event to Sydney’s City2Surf builds on our strong history of community involvement that stretches back almost 200 years. Westpac will be continuing our support of the Victorian community by choosing the Victorian Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service as official charity partner for the 2013 City2Sea.
This event will truly showcase the Australian way of life and the very best Melbourne has to offer. We will be encouraging all Melburnians and the Westpac community to get involved in this great day and show your support for the Victorian Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service.
Westpac Warm up!
Westpac ambassador Aussie hurdler Michelle Jenneke will lead the Westpac Yellow Group in a pre-race routine. Michelle will wake up the crowd, taking them through warm-up stretches and her signature pre-race moves. A fun and interactive warm-up that the whole crowd can get involved in.
Supporting Runners on Race day
As a proud sponsor of the third annual Sunday Age City2Sea Westpac will be supporting front runners and fun runners alike throughout their run.
Situated on the F1 Pit lane pit lane , you’ll find the Westpac Chopper Support Station hosting karaoke. For every song sung, Westpac will donate $50 to Victorian Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service. Don’t forget to stop off and belt out your favourite song.
Just after the Westpac Chopper Support Station on Pit lane, the Westpac Misting Tent will be a destination to refresh and re-energise you on the way to the finish line.

Be a Hero in 2013 - support Rescue Services
The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Service was established together with Surf Life Saving Australia in 1973. Since then we’ve partnered with them in building a national service which has grown from 1 to 10 bases, saving more than 22,000 lives.
Westpac is proud to stand alongside the brave and dedicated rescue crew and volunteers who watch over us and who risk their lives for us. Two helicopters patrol Victoria's busy coastline, helping to keep Victorians safe along the coast and assisting in other emergencies.
We encourage all runners to support the Victorian Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Service by selecting it as the fund-raising charity on the City2Sea entry form. You can also get your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you ahead of the big race on Sunday 17 November.
