Adelaide was recently voted one of the top 10 cities in the world by Lonely Planet. The 'City of Churches' is a sophisticated city that offers visitors a diverse range of multicultural restaurants and pop-up laneway bars, a pumping festival and music scene, pristine beaches and boutique wineries, and live sport at the famous Adelaide Oval.

Mercure Hotel

The Mercure Hotel is located in American River, just a short 20-minute drive from the Penneshaw ferry terminal. Located over-looking the picturesque American River this quality 4.5 star hotel offers guests a range of accommodation options in close proximity to local amenities.


Without a doubt the best event ever run, and we've run a fair few hundred. Scenery, wildlife, friendliness, volunteers, organisation, weather....everything was 101% perfect.  Forget those big city marathons, this will be our annual pilgrimage now. Roll on next year.
