The Impi Sportswear Kids Dash offers our young runners the opportunity to experience the excitement of race day, whilst enjoying the outdoors in one of the most spectacular running locations around.

Parents, family and friends are invited to cheer along our little stars in either the 3km or 1.5km events taking place on Sunday 18 May, 2025.

Both events will take place on road surface, utilising the safe closed roads and park pathways.


The Impi Sportswear Kids Dash course will take place on the closed roads of Seaworld Drive. Runners will enter Doug Jennings Park for the final 50m of their run to hear the crowd calling their name as they run down the finish chute.

Runners in the 3km event will complete two laps of the course. Lead and Trail Bikes will be in place for runner safety along with drink station at the lap point & finish line.
