​The 12k run/walk creates an atmosphere of excitement, nervous energy and anticipation. So why not join in the fun, create a new goal for yourself, your team or your family!

The 12k start has the highest number of participants. Imagine being amongst the crowd of people who fill King William St - it is truly a spectacular sight; be inspired, join over 26,000 others and register to participate.

There are always the serious athletes, the elite runners from all over Australia but overwhelmingly the majority of people are there for the fun. There will be people dressed up supporting charities or advertising local groups and businesses. As you proceed down the course you can soak up the road side entertainment and the encouragement of fellow participants or by-standers.

When you reach the Bay you will find yourself "surprised" that you made it; maybe because you've achieved a new personal best, or maybe just that you got to the end!

As you run through the finish, you will be approached by a marshal with a timing wand. This is a necessary double check and finalisation of your time.

Do not arrange to meet friends or family in the compound - keep moving!

Do not stop on the finish line. Walk quickly through the channels past the marshals with the timing wands.

Water and Gatorade will be available in the compound

Do not hand in your TAG/RACE NO. it is a keepsake!

PUBLIC STATEMENT: 14 October 2021

Lumary City-Bay Fun Run will not go ahead in 2021

 

It is with great disappointment that the Lumary City-Bay confirms it will not proceed in 2021.

Lumary City-Bay, which is run by a volunteer Management Committee, has been working on delivering a Covid-safe City-Bay for many months now.

On review, the invitation by SA Health to the City-Bay on 8 October 2021 to revise and resubmit an updated COVID Management Plan for reassessment, was made with reference to guidelines which had already considered, including removing the post-run activities.

City-Bay’s volunteer Management Committee could not see any further changes it could make to running its event on November 7 that would change the reasons SA Health COVID Management Committee sighted for declining the 2021 City-Bay approval. These were:

  • High risk of transmission from increased exhalation during the event
  • Uncontrolled outbreaks in neighbouring eastern states
  • Significant impact on the State’s resources – testing capacity, contact tracing, hospital beds etc in case of an outbreak

Furthermore, even if approval was received within the week, the very tight timelines mean it would be impossible to reinstate some operational aspects of the event and successfully deliver the Lumary City-Bay in 2021.

The Lumary City-Bay Team, sponsors and charities remain extremely disappointed, but the decision has now fired all of us up for a bigger and stronger event in 2022. We hope it has fired you up as well and we look forward to your ongoing support in 2022.

We confirm entrants are offered a choice to carry-over their entry to the 2022 Lumary City-Bay (that option would be our preferred), donate to the City-Bay Trust or request a full refund.
We appreciate and thank the Community of South Australia for their continuing support.
