Come and join in one of these runs
This is the 2019 Greenbelt Challenge which will be held on Sunday 21st July 2019. It will be presented by the South Australian Road Runners Club. To enter into this event, go to this link.

This is actually race #2 of the Triple Crown Series.

Originally starting out as the Half Marathon Distance of the Adelaide Marathon, Greenbelt has evolved over the years - it has had changes to its course to make the distances shorter than before.

In 2018, the Greenbelt Half turned into the Greenbelt Challenge. So the question now is - now that it is half the distance - are you up to the challenge in 2019?

The Greenbelt Challenge will consist of 5 distances.

30K – From River Drive, Athelstone to Henley Sailing Club West Beach

Half Marathon – This is a point to point 21.1km finishing at the Henley Sailing Club West Beach

10K – Out and back from the Henley Sailing Club West Beach

5K – Out and back from the Henley Sailing Club West Beach

Children's Fun Run – Henley Sailing Club West Beach to Henley Sailing Club West Beach

There will be the following
Finisher medal for all events
Electronic timing and certificate
Age category awards
Drink stations
First aid
Finish line / Post event experience
Event photography for purchase

About the Greenbelt Challenge
Their motto is " Just train. Just strive. Just inspire. Just live. Just enjoy. Just run!"

You don't need to be a super athlete, although you may well want to be. They want to encourage running for everyone in Adelaide, and visitors to South Australia.

The South Australian Road Runners Club Inc (SARRC) exists to promote and encourage recreational running and walking in South Australia.

SARRC is the largest running club in South Australia. It was originally established in 1979 for people who had an interest in running the Marathon. Whilst people are compromised with many sporting talents and gifts, SARRC are not elite athletes! Their club is open to anyone at any level of fitness or ability. This includes those who wish to walk in the parklands once or twice a week, through to those who want to train to run Marathons locally, interstate or overseas. SARRC offers the opportunity for anyone in the community to exercise with others of a similar level of fitness and interest, whether it be socially or in competition.
