Held on our certified 2200m Adelaide University Loop and taking in a sample of the renowned Adelaide Parklands every lap, the course allows beginner and experienced runners alike to challenge themselves in an event-type of which there are very few in Australia. The central location means its a very short trip into the city centre, or to the famous eateries of North Adelaide.

Will I need a head torch?

To be safe, yes. However many runners are able to run laps in the nighttime hours without a head torch. There is low light from the street lighting throughout most of the circuit.

Will I need a crew or lap counters?

Providing your own crew for the ’24 hour’ race is highly recommended. First In Sport First Aid will be on hand for the duration of the race but personal crews are great for providing specialist support for individual runners. Lap counting will be done electronically so there is no need for runners to supply their own counters. Up to date results will be via the television screens at the timing area for the duration of the race.

When do I receive my race number/timing chip?

Bibs and timing chips, as well as merchandise, can be collected at the Timing Area from 5.00pm Friday July 13, and on Saturday July 14 from 5.00am.

Will there be shelter?

Several marquees will be set up at the Food and Timing Areas which will provide shelter.

Will there be toilets and showers?

There will be four portable toilets on course next to the Timing Area.

Will I have milestones recorded?

All entrants will have their final distances recorded. However if you wish to have any interim distances recorded (such as 50km, 100km etc) you must let Ultra Runners South Australia know by Thursday July 12 2018.

Can I have a pacer?

In short, no. Pacers are prohibited by the IAU who provide the sanctioning (and therefore the rules) for the event. However, after 6.00pm on Saturday July 14, the 24 Hour runners will be permitted to have an occasional friend or family member join them on laps for support only, no pacing. This person must run/walk on the grass on the inside of the track and all runners must be aware of not impeding the progress of other entrants on the track.

Parking is available for free along War Memorial Drive after 6pm Friday and all times across the weekend. Please take note of signage or parking restrictions enforced by the local council.

Is there accommodation nearby?

For accommodation options near the race area you may want to consider the following options.

  • Adelaide Caravan Park
  • Adelaide Meridien Hotel and Apartments
  • Majestic Minima
  • Adelaide Royal Coach
  • Hotel Old Adelaide

The Adelaide University Loop is no more than a fifteen minute drive from anywhere in North Adelaide or the Adelaide CBD. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact Ultra Runners South Australia.
