Ben Moreau and Linda Spencer are your two City2Surf 2013 champions in the men's and women's division, respectively.
The annual race, which is held in Sydney, Australia, is one of the largest races in the world with over 1.5 million participants in its 42-year history, per the City2Surf website.
Although many of the participants enjoy the race as a "fun run," there are plenty of runners looking to post a competitive time on the 14-kilometer (8.7-mile) course. With more than 80,000 competitors involved annually, the race is a sight to behold. City2Surf tweeted out a picture of the start.

Here's a look at the top times from the men's and women's divisions.
City2Surf tweeted out a photo of the victorious Moreau crossing the finish line at 41 minutes, 47 seconds.

However, Moreau wasn't the only one putting up an impressive time. Liam Adams was right on his trail with a time of 42:03, Adams was the 2012 and 2011 winner of the event, so edging him out was quite the accomplishment for Moreau.
Rounding out the men's top three was Steve Kelly at 42:49.
The women's classification also crowned a new champion as Linda Spencer crossed the finish line at 48:28.
The battle for second place came down to a near photo finish as Milly Clark's time of 49:41 edged out Sarah Klein's 49:53 finish.
While these competitors certainly deserve to be acknowledged, everyone involved in the race was truly a success. According to the City2Surf website, the event raised more than $3.5 million for charity.
That's what makes this a great event that should make all participants proud.
