For the second consecutive year, Pan Pacific Perth returns as the official hotel sponsor for the 2013 Chevron City to Surf for Activ on Sunday 25 August.

Touted the richest road race in the Southern Hemisphere with an $82,000 prize pool, this event attracts both international and local elite athletes with over 45,000 anticipated participants.

Celebrating 39 years, the Chevron City to Surf for Activ is Western Australia’s largest community event, raising money for the Activ Foundation, one of WA’s leading community organisations that provides services and support to people with disability. This year’s event will offer various runs including the marathon, half marathon, 12km walk/run or a 4km walk/run with a wheelchair category.

General Manager of Pan Pacific Perth, Grant Raubenheimer commented, “Pan Pacific Perth is excited to once again be on board as the official hotel sponsor for the Chevron City to Surf for Activ. This partnership resonates strongly with our Pan Pacific brand promise, which is very much focused on creating meaningful and refreshing experiences not only for our guests but also for our staff and local partners. The Chevron City to Surf for Activ is a great way to showcase this beautiful city while raising money for a much worthy cause. This year, a number of our hotel associates will be involved in the run including myself and Glenn Shoebridge, Director of Sales and Marketing. I am hoping to learn some tips from the talented elite athletes staying and dining at our hotel and improve on my time from last year.”
