Join SARRC for our 45th Adelaide Marathon Festival events. With an AIMS Certified 21.0975km course.

Starting at and finishing at Bonython Park this year, 2024 will be an event you won’t want to miss. Course remains the same as 2023.

Car Parking: PARKING MAP TBC as at 1 May 2024

Bonython Park has 1 paid parking area on the southern section of Bonython Park adjacent to the race village. This parking is controlled by U-Park and will cost about $8.50 payable on exit - card only. Please follow the instructions given by the parking volunteers so that we can get as many cars parked as possible. Fair warning that anyone who parks outside of the parking area in the park could be open to a strictly enforced $153 on the spot fine.

Additional parking is available at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre ($5) which is a short walk from the Village. If you plan to park there, it is recommended that you avoid approaching along Park Terrace as this section is heavily congested on race morning due to road restrictions.

Event Village:

The Event Village at Bonython Park will include Bag Drop, Toilets, First Aid and Coffee/Food trucks as well as Sponsors and SARRC Information.

To help with COVID requirements, limit the number of family members and supporters inside the village it would help keep numbers down and ensure adequate social distancing.

Start Times:

Marathon: 6.30am
Half Marathon: 7:00am
10Km: 7:30am
5Km: 7:45am

Start Procedures

The start for this years race will be on Port Rd to ensure a clean open and fast start for all participants. We will again return to mass starts for this years event. We are using a self seeding start line at the Adelaide Marathon this year. All potential placegetters (first 3 male or female) should please proceed to the front of the start group as these positions will be timed on gun time so need to go out first. All other competitors will be timed using net time which means your time only starts when you cross the start line. We ask that you assemble back from the start along Port Rd in approximate sequence to your expected finish time. There will be time boards giving you an indication of where to line up. Once the gun goes, please move forward and begin running across the start line.
