Touched by Olivia Butterfly Run in Adelaide, South Australia

The Butterfly Run in Adelaide, South Australia is an 8km fun run/walk organised by the Touched By Olivia Foundation, which aims to improve the health and happiness of children by raising funds for Sydney Children's Hospital and building playgrounds for children of all abilities to play side by side.

This is a low support event, which means that anyone can turn up on the day and travel the suggested course in whatever manner suits them.

The course leaves from Bonython Park, and will cross over to the north side of the river at the weir near Adelaide Gaol, travel along the shared pathway past the convention centre, before looping back over the pedestrian bridge after Adelaide Zoo, just before Hackney road, and returning to the starting point along the opposite bank.

The course is around 8km long, although there are plenty of opportunities to take a bridge crossing at an earlier point for those who prefer a shorter option.
