A family fun run day with a difference - run, walk or push a pram for Palestine!

A great family day out to raise awareness, funds and hope for a fair go and a just peace for our friends in Palestine.

For those serious about their fun runs, you can choose a:

  • 5km RUN (1 lap)
  • 10km RUN (2 laps)
  • 5km WALK (1 lap)

... around Adelaide's beautiful linear park along the Torrens River in Adelaide city. 

Bring a picnic, bring Grandma and Grandpa, make a day of it!  All welcome!

The Course

START/FINISH: Bonython Park (lawn/oval area south of kiosk)

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 - or round again for a second lap for those super-keen 10km runners.

Also - electronic timing for runners, with thanks to Event Strategies Pty Ltd, experienced in electronic timing and event management for running, cycling, swimming, triathlons etc, from small community events to national and world championships.
