The Sun Run is the first event in a two-event summer series (the Sizzlin' Series), with each event visiting a separate segment of the River Torrens Linear Pathway (in Adelaide, SA). The first event - the Sun Run - follows the path along the river a bit north of the city. The second event, the City Run (3 Feb 2021), will follow the Linear Path along the Torrens River, using the Weir Loop.
The Sun Run showcases a new course in the City of Norwood, Payneham, & St Peters. The course is a 7.5km loop along the river, a quiet scene in shady forestry. All distances less than 7.5km will do a shortened loop and all distances more than 7.5km will do multiple loops.
