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!.
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.
