This year's Adelaide Marathon Festival will be held on Sunday the 20th of August 2017. It showcases Adelaide to approximately 3000 local, national and international runners who will run past the iconic landmarks of the Adelaide Zoo, Adelaide Botanic Gardens, River Torrens and Adelaide Oval. The event comprises a 42.2km marathon, a 21.1km half marathon, a 10km run and a 2km fun run. You can register for any one of these via their website.
Race ambassador Jessica Trengove will be completing the 21.1km half marathon. Jessica is a two-time Olympian and Commonwealth Games bronze medallist.
If you would rather not run, but still like to be involved, then why not consider being a volunteer to help make the event safe and enjoyable for all. You can help out as traffic marshals, drink station attendants, bag drop attendants, bib scanners, course sweepers, etc. Just head to their website to register your interest.
