For the first time ever in Australia, a reverse run from the Bay to the City will be held – five months before the annual Adelaide City-Bay event.
The Sunday Mail Bay-City Fun Run is a fun run between the beach-side town of Glenelg and the Adelaide city centre. The full course will be 12km, with a 5km distance also available for entrants.
The Bay-City Fun Run aims to promote healthy living and community participation, and is an inclusive event which encourages participation from all sections of the community including the young, elderly, people with disabilities and people from rural and regional areas.
The Sunday Mail Bay-City Fun Run motivates large numbers of the population to increase their activity levels.
The Sunday Mail Bay-City Fun Run is organised by the City-Bay Fun Run Committee Incorporated, which currently organizes the iconic Sunday Mail City-Bay Fun Run, held annually in September. This event is Australia’s largest fun run per capita and attracts over 40,000 participants annually, which provides funds for Athletics in South Australia.
The Bupa Challenge Tour is not a race. Instead it’s a chance for cyclists of all abilities to ride Bupa Stage 4 of this UCI WorldTour event - just hours before the professionals tackle the route.
The 2015 Bupa Challenge Tour will take place on Friday 23 January and is ideal for individuals, social, corporate and sporting groups keen to ride a stage of the Santos Tour Down Under.
Riding the Bupa Challenge Tour is a great opportunity to see some of what South Australia has to offer, while enjoying a chat with fellow riders or setting a personal time goal to beat.
As the official recreational ride of the Santos Tour Down Under, the 2015 Bupa Challenge Tour will see riders set off from the beachside suburb of Glenelg and head for the town of Mount Barker in the Adelaide Hills.
Participants completing the full ride will travel a total distance of 151.7km. Three other distances and starting locations are also available for riders to choose from: Willunga (118.7km), Mount Compass (77.5km) or Macclesfield (27km).
More than 6,600 people took part in the 2014 Bupa Challenge Tour and the event looks forward to welcoming riders from across Australia and around the world in 2015.
