Kids K – sponsored by Mawsons

This is an event just for the kids. Kids of all ages up to grade 6 can run/walk/skip the Mawsons Kids K. Dress up if you want, it’s all for fun! The Mawsons Kids K is just that – a nice short 1km distance – just right for little legs. This event is not timed but there will be a medal at the end for all participants. Parents are welcome to run/walk alongside their little champs and encourage them along.

Starting at the entrance to the Recreation Reserve, the course runs clockwise around the outside of the oval. Upon reaching the gate onto the oval at the Second Oval end (a marshal will be here), runners will enter the oval and complete 3/4 of a lap anti-clockwise on the inside of the oval. Runners will exit the gate adjacent to Apex Park (a marshal will be here), turning right and finishing back at the start point.

Marshals will be placed along the course, and lead runners will run this course to assist with directions.


Thanks to Mawsons for its generous sponsorship of this event.
