Brian Boyd - PAYCE sponsors a new street vs street challenge in 2014 Sutherland2Surf fun run and walk
Mr. Brian Boyd & Mr Dominic Sullivan of PAYCE Communities discuss the sponsorship of the Street Team Challenge in the Sutherland2Surf fun run & walk.
PAYCE is well-known in the Sutherland shire as an active supporter and contributor of many local community and charity events. This year sees PAYCE sponsoring a new challenge category in the Sutherland2Surf fun run, that pits street against street in a thrilling winner take all competition for prizes and accolades.
New challenge on Sydneys Athletic calendar
Many of the entrants in this year's 11 kilometre Fun Run & Walk on Sunday 20 July are expected to use the event as a warm-up for the Sun Herald City to Surf held three weeks later.
The PAYCE Street Team Challenge will see entrants from one street compete against entrants from other streets in a bid to win the first S2S Street Challenge.
All entrants are eligible to enter the category, whether they live in or outside the shire. Members of the same household are also eligible, including relatives or people sharing the same address.
Once four entrants from the same street have registered for the event or selected the Street Team Challenge category, the street will automatically be entered into the street challenge.
Mr Dominic Sullivan explains the Sutherland2Surf street vs. street challenge
PAYCE's General Manager, Dominic Sullivan said there is no upper limit on team numbers.
"The fastest four in each team will combine their times to compare with other teams' results," he said.
"The four fastest team members of the winning team will each receive a plaque acknowledging the individual effort for their street.
"The team members may not have known each other before entering, but this affords an opportunity to build neighbour relations by introducing them to each other via this special category."
Sutherland to the Surf part of the local Sydney community
Although not quite as challenging as the City 2 Surf event, the southern Sydney event winds through a number of suburbs in the Sutherland Shire and has its fair share of hills to test competitors.
The route of this year's event is from Sutherland through Kirrawee, Gymea, Miranda, Caringbah and Cronulla, with the finish at Wanda Beach, where spectators and entrants will enjoy some festive activities prior to the winners' presentation ceremony.
Anita Pryke, President of the Wanda Surf Life Saving Club, said the community event had become a legacy of the shire, each year continuing to attract large numbers of Sydney's elite athletes who compete for cash prizes, and a mounting number of entrants from the general public.
"The event has become a popular fun run and walk for the community, inspiring thousands of participants in a fun atmosphere shared by family and friends, children and teens and even toddlers in prams," she said.
"With less than two weeks to go, this year's registrations to date are on track to equal, if not exceed, last year's figure of 8,430."
The annual event is celebrating its 43rd year and continues to be a major fundraiser for a number of charities, including helping Wanda SLSC to continue to provide essential surf lifesaving programs on Wanda Beach.
A grand day out for the Sutherland community
PAYCE's Managing Director, Brian Boyd said his company was proud to support such a successful and important family event in the shire.
"PAYCE Consolidated Limited are expecting a long-term presence in the Sutherland Shire with our development at the old Kirrawee brick pit site, which has everything going for it to allow a vibrant community to exceed everyones expectations", said Brian Boyd.
"We believe in enhancing local communities and supporting those groups that do outstanding work in bringing communities together and helping those who need help," he said.
"This is one of the most popular community events of the year and we are thrilled to sponsor the new Street Team Challenge.
"We hope the PAYCE Street Team Challenge will help attract even more participants, but importantly it is an opportunity for neighbours to get together and race as a team rather than just compete against each other."
