The City2Surf 14km marathon is over for another year.

Olympic long-distance athlete Craig Mottram finished ahead of 80,000 competitors to take out first place with a time of 41 minutes and 56 seconds.

The time may not have been fast enough to beat Steve Moneghetti’s record of 40:03, unbroken since 1991, but Mottram only just finished in front of Brad Milosevic, who crossed the line 22 seconds after.

Other winners included female competitor Casey Wood, who ran a time of 47:59 and elite wheelchair entrant Kurt Fearnley who finished in 36:09.

The event, which has been running since 1971, raised $4,147,892.90 for more than 600 Australian charities (at the time of publication).

Despite the cold, overcast weather spectators and competitors took some great photos of the event.
