In 2012, the Sunday Mail City Bay Fun Run celebrated its 40th year by smashing numbers with a record 39,003 participants. Runners, walkers and wheelers lined the Adelaide City, Federation Centre at Kurralta Park and SAJC to take part in Australia’s largest Fun Run per head of capita. Whilst we raised money for athletics in South Australia we were also able to raise over half a million for over 200 charities! Running and walking encourages the brain to produce endorphins and other neurochemicals that can ease pain and lift your mood.
By Melina Scarfo...Sydney pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer drew a large crowd to the Adelaide UniBar on Thursday night for the fourth date of the ‘Pants Down Tour’. Since their formation in December 2011, Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin have gained a massive following online, released their debut EP and toured with One Direction. Quite impressive for a band who started by uploading covers to YouTube.
