Race Day

Half Marathon instructions

For the first time ever, City-Bay have added a half marathon to the event!

2018 is the first year ever, the City-Bay has included a half marathon event - 21.1km. Over the years we have had many participants ask for a longer distance and we are delighted to introduce the 21.1km event. The half marathon is a IAAF-AIMS Certified course.

We do recommend that anybody entering the half marathon should be able to run faster than a 7 minute km. This will ensure you won't clash with the 12km runners who will be starting at 8:00am.


The half marathon runners will leave from Morphettville Junction Centre at 6:15am and head towards the city on the Southern side of Anzac Highway. You will pass by the 12km start and then follow the same route back out to the bay. There will be no wave starts. Running with prams is not allowed.


The event finish line is on Colley Terrace. As you head towards Glenelg, you will be directed by police and race marshals to head to Jetty Rd, either via Brighton Road or Gordon Street. When travelling along Jetty Road please be aware of the tram lines and take care turning the corner from Jetty Road onto Colley Terrace.

As you run through the finish, you will be approached by marshals with a timing badger this is a double check and finalisation of your time and needs to be done.

Do not stop on the finish line walk quickly through the channels past the marshals with the badgers.

Water and Powerade will be available in the compound, fruit will be available in Colley Reserve

Do not hand in your DAG/RACE NO. it is a keepsake!

Do not arrange to meet friends or family in the compound - keep moving!
