Sutherland To Surf - Doing right by the runnersAugust 2001
There has been a letter sent to The Right Track, the execllent NSW-based running magazine and fixtures list :
".. To the Right Track,
On Sunday I ran my 17th and last Sutherland to Surf! For $20/$25 the runner gets S.F.A. Not even an orange quarter at the finish. Clothing bags dumped on a rainy hillseide - $2 for the bus ride (Randwick Rugby Runners put on a free bus ride from the 8km finish for about 20 people!) and coffee and biscuits. Fishers Ghost and Eagle Vale give everyone a T-shirt. Woodstock and WDJ&H fruit and coffee. Sri Chinmoy cereals and fruit. Sutherland to Surf with a proudly displayed list of sponsors - zilch!
