City-to-Bay is one of South Australia’s most popular events and after two years without physical competition, the much-loved foot race is back, in the flesh, for 2022.
Due to the mishaps of recent years, the City-to-Bay race has been forced to think outside the square in an attempt to keep the race going with organizers managing a virtual racing for two years!
It was the first time in the race’s long history that it was not run in the traditional way, but the organizers adapted, like all companies, to adapt to the troubled times.
The virtual event took place over a 5-week period, with participants racking up the miles in segments rather than one big chunk.
But not this year. No, this year the Lumary City-to-Bay is back in all its glory and registration is now open! Whether you are a serious sprinter or more of a jogger Jane, everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate. And look, you don’t even have to run if you really don’t want to with walkers welcome too.
City-to-Bay is organized by the non-profit organization City-Bay Fun Run Committee Inc in support of athletics in South Australia. The event is organized through the efforts of hard-working volunteers whose funds are intended to help athletes and clubs in the South Australian sporting community.
As Adelaide’s biggest running event, the annual City-to-Bay sees over 25,000 participants tackle the 12km of tarmac from the CBD to the beach-side suburb of Glenelg each year.
Of course, there are options to suit your racing ability with 3km, 6km and the traditional 12km all available, as well as a 21.1km distance for those of us who dare. The half marathon distance was introduced in 2018 and always ends in the same place as the others, this just means that those who tackle this distance will start a little further.
The Lumary City-to-Bay 2022 will take place on Sunday, September 18, 2022.
Registration for Lumary City-to-Bay 2022 is now open and can be done online here.
