"Exercise is good for all of us. Not only does it add to our health and well being, but striving to be physically fit teaches us many other skills as well. For the child or adult with ADHD, exercise and sports can help reinforce teamwork, discipline, cooperation, and how to work toward a goal. Plus, physical activity often increases self-esteem and satisfaction with life." (CHADDarticle on Exercise, Sport and ADHD)

Doing it with thousands of other people like in the Sun-Herald City2Surf presented by Westpac can be an amazing experience. Having the goal to complete the City2Surf even just walking can provide an incentive to do the preparation and build up fitness on a daily or weekly basis.
