Road closures and special event clearways will be in place throughout the Sydney CBD and the Eastern Suburbs on Sunday 14 August 2022 for the World's Largest Fun Run, the City2Surf. Waverley Council has negotiated a $20 all day parking rate at Bondi Junction Eastgate for race day. The carpark has a capacity of 930 spaces, opens from 5:00am to 11:30pm, and is accessed via Newland St and Ebley St. It is 200m from Bondi Junction Interchange.

Over 85,000 people will take on the spectacular 14km course from Hyde Park in the Sydney CBD to the iconic Bondi Beach to help raise over $49 million for charities since 2008. The event starts at 7:40am for elite wheelchair athletes and 7:45am for runners and finishes by 2:00pm when the last participant crosses the finish line at Queen Elizabeth Dr, Bondi Beach.
