Park Lands Loop collective: 15km Walk, Ride or Run
Walk, run or ride a loop around Adelaide completely through Park Lands & share the experience using #parklandsloop
Adelaide is uniquely encircled by a figure-eight of Park Lands.
A walking lap around the city is 13.6km - a perfect distance for a good spring walk.
For cyclists, there is a slightly longer route of 15.35km. The cycling route goes around (rather than through) the Botanic Garden (where bikes are not allowed) and stays almost entirely on paved pathways.
Please note: these maps were produced for an earlier edition of the event, when we were travelling anti-clockwise. This time, we'll be following the same route, but going clockwise instead, i.e. heading WEST from the start point at the Himeji Japanese Garden on South Terrace
Pick your own adventure: add in North Adelaide for a longer route; just do a few kilometres; cycle several laps; jog with a pram... the how and how far is up to you!
On Sunday 1st October a group will depart from Himeji Gardens at 9am, walk (or run) the 13.6 km loop of the CBD (not North Adelaide) in an ANTI-CLOCKWISE direction (i.e. the direction of the yellow arrows above) aiming to finish back at Himeji Gardens several hours later. Hutt Street is nearby with numerous opportunities for post-loop refreshments if desired. Cafe Bonython in Bonython Park is located about half-way along the loop distance.
Join the group starting at 9am, if you wish, OR do your own loop at an earlier or later time of your choosing.
Either way, wear some green, take photos on the way to post using #parklandsloop, and keep an eye out for fellow loopers!
Register (with a free ticket) to let us know either that you wish to join the main group (walking, or running or cycling), or that you will be joining in but doing your own route on your own schedule. Only one registration per group is required.
