This option is aimed at children wanting to give it a go.
Lots of parents enjoy completing this event with their children and you are very welcome to do this even if you are also competing in one of the other events.
The course for this is two laps of the Sports Fields to ensure the safety of the children and for ease of watching by their supporters.
You can run or walk it – or a bit of both!
This year we are only awarding prizes to those in the 4-9 year old age group to ensure that this group get a fair chance at winning the top prizes, and to also encourage the bigger kids to give the 5km a go. Last year we were so impressed with the 9-year olds who completed the 5km distance, proving that with the right attitude, this distance is perfectly achievable for 9+ year olds!”
This event will NOT be electronically timed due to the age of some of the participants and the impracticalities of them using a timing device. We will have a judge at the finish line recording the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place holders.
