About the Adelaide
24 hour Festival
The event promises to be another classic event on South Australia's growing Ultra Calendar. Held on a certified 2.200km Adelaide University Loop and taking in a sample of the infamous parklands every lap, the course allows beginner and experienced runners alike to challenge themselves in an event of which there are very few in Australia.
The central location means it's a very short trip into the city centre, or to the infamous eateries of North Adelaide.
So come and be a part of one of Adelaide's revived and revered events.
Early Bird entries close Thursday April 30 with all entries closing Wednesday July 8.
The event features;
IAU Bronze Label "Road" Certification
fee for AURA members
Trophies for top 3 male
and female in each event
Finisher medal for all
About the "Uni-loop"
A certified 2.200km gravel track, this path circles the University of Adelaide playing fields at North Adelaide. Mostly flat, with only a slight undulation at the back of the Council Depot, the track is well worn and comfortably accommodates two people running side-by-side.
On the day, the course will NOT be closed to the public, so be aware that other people will be using the path throughout the day. However based on experience of similar events held here over the last two years at roughly the same time of year, public traffic is very light.
Also be aware that each lap involves crossing the access road into the Council Depot. Once again though, expect this road to be used lightly.
Be sure to check left and right before crossing.
The 6 and 12 Hour start at 6am on Saturday July 11. The 24 Hour starts at 10am of that day. Entrants may wish to use a headlamp/torch for the nighttime hours.
Please note that, to get the best chance of receiving your race shirt on race day, entries must be in by Thursday April 30. Any shirts not able to be given out on the day will be posted.
Further information, including the race day handbook, will be made available on this page by the end of June.
In the meantime, any questions can be directed to Race Director Ben Hockings via email
