The City2Surf has now been running for 47 years and the reputation of this uniquely Sydney winter event has grown year on year. The event is widely recognised as a ‘bucket-list’ item for serious runners and adventure lovers around the world. It has been proven time and time again that no other fun run in the Southern Hemisphere matches the City2Surf in terms of organisation or demographics with nearly 100,000 runners in 2018!
So Thinxtra had to be part of it. Our motto for the event was “Time to Xcelerate” and printed on the front of our teal T-shirts.
Indeed, Thinxtra was Xcelerating with a team of 10 runners for the 14km running event. During the race, the team could be followed online through the Tibib platform. This new IoT platform by Ticatag is dedicated to geolocate participants during events and review their performance too after.
The Sigfox GPS tracker device used during the event was the Xpress from Thinxtra.
Then after the effort, a nice recovery session with drinks & food was taking place at Tamarama beach. Go Xteam!
