Course Description

The kids dash is a single circuit along Tamaki Drive. Starting at the same place as the adults’ races, on Tamaki Drive in front of Selwyn Reserve, the kids first run East. The turnaround is 500m along Tamaki Drive, alongside the Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park. From here the kids turn around and head back west, past the start line.

The second turnaround lies shortly after 161 Tamaki Drive. Here the kids will be directed back east towards the race site. Just before the reserve, opposite Marau Cresent, the field will be directed onto the waterfront path alongside the reserve. 200 metres along the path, they will take the right fork, heading inland and then turn right again, onto the grass and into Selwyn Reserve itself. There will be a medal and a lollies for every young trooper.
