5km Fun Run
The 5km fun run will start at 8:00am running/walking 2.5km east to the viaduct before the turn point on the viaduct and back to the finish line. There is no age limit for the event as we are aware that many families will want to walk or run the course together. For insurance purposes, children over 3 who intend participating in the 5km Fun Run event, either walking or running, must do so under the supervision of their parent or an adult guardian.
Children 3 years and under, being pushed in a pram and accompanied by a registered adult do not need to register to participate in the 5km Fun Run.
