McMillan 10km 'Drilling' - run & walk

PDF Entry Form

A flat and fast course, using the rural roads of Ellesmere.

This can be done as a run, individually or in a team of three, or individually as a walk. You start at the iconic Southbridge Rugby Club where Dan Carter began his career. You complete a lap around the field, then follow the same course as the second half of the half marathon, by running through the Southbridge township before hitting the home straight to finish in Leeston. You finish on Gallipoli Street after running down the main street in Leeston where there will be locals cheering you home. You will be able to rest up afterwards to live music and plenty of food stalls on the grass in Anderson Square.

There will be a bus running from Anderson Square to Southbridge (register your interest when you enter) or you can make your own way there.


Entry Fee: $50, +$15 late fee from Friday 9th October
