ONE EVENT. ONE START TIME. MULTIPLE LOCATIONS.

Welcome to run4reef, a synchronised race event taking part across 21 cities in Australia & New Zealand.
Races will start simultaneously with a global leaderboard where you will not only compete against your local runners, but runners from across two continents. Register for your preferred distance with races at 1km, 5km, 10km, or the elite 10km race2zero.

run4reef isn’t all about the competition – it’s about raising awareness and funds for various projects working to maintain and restore our very own natural wonder of the world, the Great Barrier Reef.
Join run4reef in Adelaide on Sunday 16th October 2022.

Event Summary

There’s plenty of reasons to enter your run4reef event NOW. It’s a world’s first, the Great Barrier Reef needs your support, you could win a BYD electric car, there are limited registrations available, you can run against family and friends across Australia and NZ and it’s going to be FUN.

And don’t forget we are announcing some fantastic musicians playing for your entertainment!

There are limited number of registrations available in each separate host city.

The run4reef formula means that events are contained in a restricted area to minimize disruption and depending on the course width only a certain number of runners can participate. But the beauty is you can watch it all happening right in front of you.

Get in early.
run4reef is unique. Runners will start each event simultaneously across every event. Runners will not only be running with participants in their own city, but against all runners across Australia and New Zealand in real time.

As runners cross the timing mats on each lap they will be able to see their ranking across the 22 events.

One of the first 40,000 entries in all events across Australia and New Zealand will win a magnificent BYD Atto 3 electric vehicle valued at $50,000. What an amazing prize!

We will all be running as ONE. Sure it’s a race, but please remember your time only starts when you cross the starting mat and finally once you’ve finished all laps – across the finish ONETIME mat.

Apart from the race2zero all events are for all ages and abilities.

The run4reef 1km is for all boys and girls over 5 years of age and under 14 on the day of the event.

Parents may also enter the 1km to accompany their children in this event and start at the rear of the field. Parents will receive a timing tag and be eligible for entry into the prize draw for the BYD electric vehicle.

One of the best features of run4reef is that we are all running together. Cheers on your city’s best as they strive to become the first ever run4reef Champions. Cheer on your city’s best as they strive to become the first ever run4reef Champions.

race2zero Champions

race2zero entrants are competing to be host City Champions.

Urge them on – they are representing your City.

The male and female Champions at each event will each win a cash prize of $1,000 and the fastest Champions across all events will also win the Great Barrier Reef prize of 3 nights accommodation for 2 people at the run4reef Finale in May 2023 staying at the Sheraton Grand Resort, Port Douglas and touring the Great Barrier Reef including flights and transfers.

Yes – there’s more.

Our huge thanks to the run4reef musicians and bands.

What acts we have for you.

Musicians will be playing in a centralised location and broadcast across the various events via the big screens.

You can’t be late. We are all running as ONE.

However, your time only starts when you cross the start mat so please respect all participants and keep to the outside – let your City Champions through. They are racing.

…well maybe a little bit. But please remember all events across all 22 host cities must start on time. So please if you’re struggling to finish in the allocated time – please step off the course – the next event is coming.

Please use public transport, bring your water bottle, pack some snacks or support the local coffee shop and cafes, deposit any rubbish and of course return your timing tag to win the BYD. We really want to be a zero footprint event.

Adelaide, South Australia - Experience Adelaide

Adelaide's Conservation Projects

The City of Adelaide is continually working on exciting projects to improve the health of our environment. The Adelaide Park Lands are the lungs of the city. They are key ecosystems for native plants and animals to live. By working to safeguard biodiversity, we can sustain healthy natural areas in which people, plants and animals can live, work and play.

Kaurna Kardla Parranthi - Cultural Burn

The Kaurna Kardla Parranthi – Cultural Burn was a collaborative partnership project that allowed for the first time a Cultural burn in a capital city in Australia.

Biodiverse Carbon Offset Demonstration Project

The Biodiverse Carbon Offset Demonstration project aimed to revegetate an area of the Park Lands with native vegetation from the Mallee Box Woodland ecological community.

River Torrens Recovery Program

With this program since 2019, the City of Adelaide has removed thousands of woody weeds and declared species along the river and over 1400 (~4 tonne) of European carp.

Protecting and enhancing remnant vegetation in the Park Lands

Last year, the City of Adelaide joined forces with several schools and Rotary clubs in planting more than 5,000 native plants in the Park Lands.

Mistletoe Park / Tainmuntilla Park Lands

The Mistletoe Part/Tainmuntilla (Park 11) Park Lands biodiverse and water sensitive gateway and urban address project aims to revegetate approximately 1200 sqm with riverred gum woodland native species and create a WSUD address at the start of Mistletoe Park.
