Getting Here

The start-finish of the Great Southern Run Fest is located at the Aldinga Bay Surf Life Saving Club, Norman Road, Silver Sands, SA 5173, approximately 45 minutes drive south of Adelaide CBD.

Travelling from the north, take the Main South Road (B23) past Aldinga, turning off at Norman Road.

Car Parking

Please follow the instructions of our marshals on race morning who will direct you our event car park on Norman Road, approximately 800m walk to the start-finish area at Aldinga Bay Surf Life Saving Club. Please do not park on Norman Road itself as this may interfere with the temporary traffic controls and obstruct the run course itself. There is strictly no parking for runners at the start-finish area or on Silver Sands beach.

Arrange to car-pool if possible to minimize the environmental impact and disruption to the local community and plan to arrive early enough to walk to the race start.
