The Course

START/FINISH: Bonython Park (lawn/oval area south of kiosk - off of Port Road)

The run and walk will go anti-clockwise around the Torrens River, first along the south side of the river past the Convention Centre, then cross at the university footbridge and back through the north side parklands past The Oval, cross at the weir and return to Bonython Park finish line.

Unfortunately there will be no official timing services provided for runners this year, due to prohibitive costs.
