Kids’ 1k
The course is a 1k loop on both grass and concrete paths.  All runners will complete one lap.  Parents are allowed to run with their own children free of charge in this race only.

5k and 10k races
The course is a fairly flat and multi-terrain (running on both grass and concrete paths), with some hilly areas.  The course is a 5k loop. Runners will complete one lap for the 5k, or two laps for the 10k. The course is signposted and in parts taped, so please stay on the course. There will be plenty of marshals along the route to help you.
