If the child is under 8 years old a parent or guardian is encouraged to run in the event with them. There is no entry fee for these parents to run in the kids dash. A maximum of one parent per child.
CAN A KIDS DASH RUNNER RUN/WALK WITH MUM OR DAD IN THE 5km EVENT?
Kids are welcome to join their parent in the main event (if they are capable), however they will not recieve a finishing time as their bibs do not contain the timing chip. Kids on the 5k run must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
