… around Adelaide’s beautiful linear park along the Torrens River in Adelaide city

THE COURSE

START/FINISH: BONYTHON PARK (LAWN/OVAL AREA SOUTH OF KIOSK – OFF OF PORT ROAD)
HOW TO GET TO THE START LINE

The run and walk will go anti-clockwise around the Torrens River, first along the south side of the river past the Convention Centre, then cross at the university footbridge and back through the north side parklands past The Oval, cross at the weir and return to Bonython Park finish line.

Unfortunately there will be no official timing services provided for runners this year, due to prohibitive costs.

T-SHIRT SIZING

Australians for Palestine designed the popular t-shirts used in the annual Run for Palestine held in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and Perth.

The white t-shirts feature a version of Handala the much-loved iconic faceless refugee child first created by Palestinian artist and cartoonist Naji Al Ali. The logo was designed by artist Dora McPhee for Run for Palestine. The text reads: RUN FOR PALESTINIAN HUMAN RIGHTS.

The t-shirts are unisex and come in two types: normal white cotton and the Dri-FIT t-shirt preferred by runners. Both t-shirts carry the Run for Palestine logo.

Available sizes (cotton):
(measure across the shoulders)
Youth XS = 39cm
Youth M = 44cm
Adult S = 46cm
Adult M = 49cm
Adult L = 53cm
Adult XL = 57cm
Adult 2XL = 62cm
Adult 3XL = 68cm


Available sizes (Dri-Fit): XS, small, medium large.

Your selected t-shirt is included in your pack with numbered bib and timer when you purchase your tickets. The packs will be available for collection on the day of the Run. You can also use your t-shirt from the previous year, so that more funds can go to helping the children.

T-shirts will be available for sale on the day as well.

All profits from this event will go to support the humanitarian campaign work of the Australian Friends of Palestine Association (AFOPA), a local community organisation based in Adelaide since 2004.

Thousands of sight-saving cataract surgeries have been performed by AFOPA member, Dr Francis Nathan, who regularly volunteers his expertise as an ophthalmic surgeon in Palestine and Lebanon for poor families who could not otherwise afford such medical care.

Similarly, AFOPA member, Ms Merlin Nathan, has volunteered her expertise as an occupational therapist to help Palestinian families in need and to train health care professionals in Palestine.

Both Francis and Merlin Nathan have volunteered their services for many years in medical missions with the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund.  AFOPA is proud to support their work with financial contributions towards essential medical equipment and training.
