Today we went on the Adelaide ( South Australia) City to Bay fun run.
First time it has run since 2019, cancelled last 2 years due to Covid

Great community event and fund raiser and levels for all ages and abilities.
21km half marathon, runners only, 12 km runners and walkers ( including people with wheelchairs and prams) 6km runners and walkers, 3 km untimed.

We walked the 6 km course in just under an hour.

My two girls aged 50 and 48 run every weekend to get fitter for the half marathon, they must be mad.

Well done. I might be able to do 6 km in an hour on a bike, but certainly not on foot.

Half marathon or even 12km is out of my range.
We saw the 12km runner go past as we were waiting to start ( obviously at their half way point) quite a few older runners, some looked in their 70's

Good luck to your girls. smile.png

have heard that said before.

But we don't run, we just walk.

Have done the local one in my own town for last 3 years - always held on Australia Day (Jan 26th) at 8 am

Used to jog 8km every other day with the pup but then he started complaining about his knees, deviating from his diet on weekends and having a few extra tequila shots on Friday nights. So now we only jog 4.8 km every other day. Bad dog, bad.
