Held on our certified 2200m Adelaide University Loop and taking in a sample of the renowned Adelaide Parklands every lap, the course allows beginner and experienced runners alike to challenge themselves in an event-type of which there are very few in Australia. The central location means it’s a very short trip into the city centre, or to the famous eateries of North Adelaide.

In 2019 we will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the 12 Hour.

Come and be a part of one of Adelaide’s longest running and most revered ultra running events.

The event features:

  • IAU Silver Label Certification (currently being sought)
  • Discounts registration fee for AURA members
  • Perpetual cups for each gender winner of each event
  • Trophies for top 3 male and female in each event
  • Medal for all starters
  • Electronic timing/live web updates and track-side information screens

About the “Uni-loop”
A certified 2.200km gravel track, this path circles the University of Adelaide playing fields in North Adelaide. Mostly flat, with only a slight undulation at the back of the Council Depot, the track is well worn and comfortably accommodates two people running side-by-side.

Further information, including the race briefing, will be made available on this page by the end of June. In the meantime, any questions can be emailed to Ultra Runners South Australia.

...I wanted to see what my body is capable of doing in 24 hours.
