    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.
