Kids K – Sponsored by North Central CMA

This is an event just for the kids. Kids of all ages up to grade 6 can run/walk/skip the CMA Healthy Gunbower Forest Kids K. Dress up if you want, it’s all for fun! The CMA Healthy Gunbower Forest 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 treat at the end for all participants. Parents are welcome to run/walk alongside their little champs and encourage them along.

NOTE: This is a change of course location due to the solo campers booking out the recreation reserve and restricting use by the public.

Starting across the road at the bridge opposite the skate park, the course runs along the creek towards the swimming pool. Upon reaching the pool, runners will follow the track between the swimming pool and the rear of the bowling club, emerging on the track alongside the creek and tennis courts. Runners will follow the creek around the tennis courts, emerging on to Tennis Road (between the tennis courts and the recreation reserve). They will run past the front of the bowling club then onto the footpath towards Apex Park, following the footpath around to finish back at the start point.

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

NOTE: If COVID-19 restrictions prevent us from running the event in-person, all events will be run virtually (at your own location within a set time-frame).


Thanks to North Central CMA for its generous sponsorship of this event.
