The Sunday Mail City-Bay is Adelaide's largest fun run. Every year thousands of people get dressed up--some more than others--to run or walk from the North Terrace down to Glenelg. In it's first year the run had 1,600 participants, now there are around 30,000 runners who join in every year.
The run kicks off near the North Terrace and King William Street intersection and goes through the city, down Anzac Highway, finishing along Jetty Road at Glenelg. The full course is 12km but for those who want something shorter there are 6km and 3km options. You can walk or run. The City-Bay always features a wide variety of people; there are the Sub-60 runners who complete the 12km in under 60 minutes, while others use it as an opportunity to have fun with friends and family while dressing up in some crazy costumes.
There are a couple of rules for the race. No dogs are allowed--unless you have a guide dog--there's no rollerblading or skateboarding, and there are no bikes or scooters. You can bring prams along, but you're not allowed to run with them.
The race ends at the Sunday Mail City-Bay Village. There will be entertainment, food and drink, massages, and more. There are prizes for the runners who achieve the best times, but there are also prizes for the 'Best Fun Dressed Individual' and the 'Best Fun Dressed Group'.
Fundraising is done through the Everyday Hero website, where you can raise money for a wide range of different charities and causes. So far they have raised over $300,000 for worthy charities.
Online entries have closed, but you can enter at the event expo on September 12th, 13th or 14th. Entry fees vary depending on which race you complete. You can find all the information on the Sunday Mail City-Bay website.
