You don't have to be a runner or walker to join in the excitement of the City-Bay. If a fun run isn't your style, there is also the Sunday Mail City-Bay EXPO. This event will be held over three days in Victoria Square and is open to any members of the public. Entry is free, which makes it even more appealing! The exposition will be open from 8am-7pm on the 15th and 16th of September, and 8am-1pm on the 17th of September.
A number of brands and organisations will be giving demonstrations and selling their equipment. In the heart of the CBD, you will find stalls for Lorna Jane, Fernwood Fitness, Skirt Sports, FlipBelt, Tryger, Massage & Movement, and more. If that's not enough, Anytime Fitness will also be holding free bootcamp sessions at the Anytime Fitness tent at midday and 6pm on the Thursday and Friday. For more information about the exposition, head to the official website.

However, it's not too late to sign up for the 2016 Sunday Mail City-Bay Fun Run. You can still get out your sneakers, find those running tights and give it a go. There are multiple runs available for entry, including a 12km run/walk, 6km run/walk, and a 3km run/walk.
This year will be the 43rd year that the City-Bay has gone ahead. In 1973, it all begun at the Adelaide Town Hall with a total of 1,600 runners. The route was 11.5km long, ending at the Glenelg Town Hall. Although the distance and route have not changed much, back in 1973, participants only paid 50c to enter! Over the years, the City-Bay has become something much more significant, being the largest fun run in South Australia. If you want to sign up, you can register at the City-Bay website.
