Downhill  –  Fast!

1 MAY 2022




We are so excited to be launching the Great Southern Bolt in 2022 with a spectacular, downhill half marathon & 12K from Myponga to Aldinga Bay, and a flat 5K on the trails through Aldinga Scrub Conservation Park.

The Bolt covers the start of the marathon course we originally planned (but were unable to run) for the McLaren Vale Marathon in 2021. There will be 50% less beach running and A LOT MORE DOWNHILL – just check out those elevation profiles on the race info pages!

All races finish at the most picturesque finish line in South Australia – at Aldinga Bay Surf Life Saving Club overlooking the pristine Silver Sands beach and crystal clear water of the St Vincent Gulf, with the dramatic backdrop of the Southern Mount Lofty Ranges that you just raced down.

If you are looking for a half marathon or 12K PB in 2022 you will not want to miss the Great Southern Bolt on Sunday 1 May.
