About Chris Edwards
City2Surf Legend
Leadership Coach and Communication Strategist
Australian Rotary Health Ambassador
Founder of the Rotary Fitness Initiative

As a boy, Chris decided to run in the annual Sydney City2Surf fun run 50 consecutive times and do each run in under 100 minutes. He is on track to achieve this personal goal and next year will run for Rotary in his 50th consecutive City2Surf.

The City2Surf is one of the world’s iconic fun runs and ranks as one of the big events topping the ‘bucket list’ of runners around the world. A little known fact – two of the key organisers of the first event were Rotarians. It was their innovative organisational thinking that started the fund-raising aspect of the event and continues to plough millions of dollars into community projects around the world. Chris was there at the beginning. He is known as the youngest of the ‘City2Surf Legends’, a small group of men who have finished the annual event every year.

Chris specialises in Goal-Setting, Motivation and Leadership.

He is an active Rotarian with the Rotary Club of Hall (district 9710) and Founder of the Rotary Fitness Initiative, an innovative concept designed to reinvigorate Rotary.
