Join SARRC for our 46th Adelaide Marathon. With an AIMS Certified course, you can qualify to Major Marathons overseas.

Starting at and finishing at Bonython Park, 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.

Marathon: 6.30am
Half Marathon: 7:00am

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.

Drink Stations:

There are plenty of drink stations along the course. Drink Station tables will be well spaced. Water and Infinit will be pre-filled in cups by our volunteers and placed on outer edge of dedicated table for runners to pick up from.

Please discard all cups into the bin bags provided at the aid stations to help minimise our environmental footprint. Non-adherence could result in disqualification.

All cups used for the event are biodegradable and should be disposed of in the drink station bins marked “Bio Cups Only”. Non-Bio rubbish (gels) should only be thrown in the last bin at each drink station marked “General Waste”.

Need a special drink on course during your Adelaide Marathon?

You have the option to place special drinks at 3 drink stations on course, which you will obviously pass again on the 2nd lap. Organise your special drink drops by choosing a noticeable and unique drink bottle, marking on the bottle clearly where you would like it dropped, and we will organise for it to be there and ready for you when you hit that drink station on event day!

Please mark the following on your Special Drink. Download Special Drink labels for printing



 Special Drinks Drop Off:

All special drinks bottles (except for DS7)  MUST be dropped off at Bib Pickup on Friday or Saturday before raceday. ONLY DS7 bottles can be dropped off at Bib Pickup on Raceday.
NOTE: No Special Drinks for DS3 or DS5 can be dropped off on raceday.

There will be 3 tubs at Bib Pickup marked for each drink station to place your drinks in.
