Fitzy's 5 is a fun run and walk on Sunday, 4 August 2019 to honour the memory of David Fitzsimons and raise funds to support the work of the Leukemia Foundation.
The picturesque 5km flat road loop course in inner city Adelaide takes in many of Adelaide’s most iconic locations including the River Torrens, Adelaide Oval, and the North Adelaide parklands. Grab your friends and give this one a try.
David "Fitzy" Fitzsimons was one of Australia's leading distance runners in the 1970s. Forever a picture of fitness, sadly, Fitzy was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. As tenacious and determined as Fitzy was, even he couldn't beat this opponent and tragically, he passed away on 7 September 2008 at the age of 58. The first run in his honour was held on 1 August 2010.
