Run with us at LambEx 2024

The LambEx River Run 
Supported by Fat Farmers: Rural Health Initiative and their ambassador Brett Burton 
Thursday 8 August 
6.15am Adelaide Confernece Centre meeting point
6.30am River Run start

LambEx takes place on the banks of the Torrens – one of Adelaide city’s most loved run/walk trails.  

LambEx legend Dr Penny Schulz is teaming up with former football legend Brett Burton to host the LambEx River run at 6.30am on August 8. 


This 5km run, jog, stagger or gentle walk around the Torrens is designed to inspire fitness and fellowship – and get you back in time for a quick shower and a power breakfast before putting on your conference kit and being back to the LambEx Conference in time for its start. 


Fat Farmers are helping us out with a team of pacers – so the ‘serious runners’ can knock their park run PB into the park if they wish by keeping up with their pacer; while the occasional runners/joggers can keep their eye on the ‘mid-field pacer’; and those who just love the walk experience will get to walk with Brett, who says he’s too old to run anymore! 


What else? Our aim is to have 100 LambEx River Runners of all shapes and sizes, kitted out in a specially manufactured LambEx Fat Farmers 100pc wool running top. 


So, to make sure you get the River Run full experience, this means we ask you to register for you run when you register for LambEx. And - if you’re keen – then why not tick the ‘LambEx running shirt’ box to order your running top. 


The message here Lamb Lovers, runners, occasional runners, could-be runners and dead-set walkers – is that there is much to be gained in the goodness of the fresh Adelaide winter morning.  


Run with us.  


About Fat Farmers

To inspire and encourage farmers and those living in rural communities to improve their health and wellbeing through physical activity.

Fat Farmers started in 2010 when Greg Hean, Ben Wundersitz and Scott Hoyle (all farmers near Maitland on Yorke Peninsula, SA) started going to the new local gym. They were over 40 and joked about becoming "Fat Farmers" now they were no longer playing footy. 

The name stuck as the Maitland group grew and gradually other communities got involved.

In 2015, the Fat Farmers concept expanded beyond Yorke Peninsula, connecting with other farmers across South Australia. Fat Farmer groups (or teams) are now dotted across the state and include a diverse range of producers (cropping, grape growers, almond farms) and with groups catering for a variety of fitness levels and ages, from school children to retirees!
