2k Kids Dash

The Kristin School Kids’ Dash starts under the same start arch as the half marathon and 8k classic, right outside the Coatesville Settlers Hall on Mahoenui Valley Road. We have secured an extended road closure on Mahoenui Valley Road to ensure the kids can take part safely and enjoy the thrill of competing in a real road race. Don’t worry if you can’t remember the course, we’ll have lots of marshals and cones to keep the kids moving in the right direction. The course is completely flat.

Important! Remember parents, you are welcome to run alongside your youngsters but you must start at the back of the field (you do not need to register if you are only accompanying your child in the dash). Kids, your time only starts when you cross the start line mats – you do not need to push to get to the front.
The 2km Kids Dash is only open to children from ages 3 to 10.

Course Description

First Lap:
From the start arch, outside the hall on Mahoenui Valley Road, kids run along the right side of Mahoenui Valley Rd to the Coatesville School driveway. A left turn takes you into the driveway and you should keep to the right as you run up the driveway and around the turning circle at the end. When you get back to Mahoenui Valley Rd, a right turn takes you up to the turnaround point, which is just before the short hill at Mahoenui Creek. You now run all the way back along Mahoenui Valley Rd towards the start arch. Run past the arch – with the arch on your left – and turnaround to enter the start chute. One lap done!.

Second Lap:
The second lap is a repeat of the first but once you get all the way past the Start Arch, this time you carry on into the Coatesville Reserve. The finish line and a whole heaps of cheering adults are just a few metres ahead.

You made it – well done! Collect your finisher medal and a lolly and get ready for prize giving.
