City-Bay again offers a half marathon at the event - 21.1!

Following the 2018 and 2019 successes, in 2021 we again offer a half marathon event - 21.1km. Over the years we have had many participants ask for a longer distance and we are delighted to continue to offer the 21.1km event. The half marathon is a IAAF-AIMS Certified course. We do recommend that anybody entering the half marathon should be able to run faster than a 7 MINUTE KM. This will ensure you won't clash with the 12km runners who will be starting at 8:00am.
The event is not suitable for walkers.

21km

The half marathon runners will leave from Colley Terrace , Glenelg. at 6:00am and head towards the city on the Southern side of Anzac Highway. You will run all the way to the southern part of King William street, then make a U-turn follow the same route back out to the bay. There will be no wave starts. Running with prams is not allowed.

Finish

The event finish line is on Colley Terrace. As you head towards Glenelg, you will be directed by police and race marshals to head to Jetty Rd, either via Brighton Road or Gordon Street. When travelling along Jetty Road please be aware of the tram lines and take care turning the corner from Jetty Road onto Colley Terrace.

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 stop on the finish line. Walk quickly through the channels past the marshals with the timing wands.

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

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.
