SA’s biggest mass participation and fundraising opportunity event, the annual Lumary City-Bay Fun Run from Adelaide to Glenelg, is back, on Sunday 15th September for its 50th running.

Race Director Joe Stevens OAM says: “This isn’t just any celebration; it’s our golden jubilee where fitness fans and community champions come together to relive 50 years of unforgettable memories. This year will be a festival of fun, fitness, retro dress-up fashion, and fundraising! Let’s fill the streets with a nostalgic parade of colour, music, excitement and achievement.”


Within the event there will be 12km, 6km and 3km fun run and walk events, plus the World Athletics-AIMS certified 21.1km half marathon course for serious long-distance runners.

The event is part of Athletics Australia’s Australian Road Running Championships.


Overwhelmingly the majority of people are there for the fun, dressed up supporting charities or advertising local groups and businesses. As they proceed down the course along Anzac Highway there will be roadside entertainment and the encouragement of fellow participants or by-standers.


“Thanks to the efforts of sponsors and volunteers in the lead up to, and on the day of the last event in 2023, we welcomed back 16,000 participants and raised over $337,000 for charities and the community, so this year we want to aim even higher,” said Joe Stevens.
