Selwyn Running Festival 01/11/2020

Half Marathon 10km 5km Kids Dash

G & M Contracting Kids Dash

PDF Entry Form

This is a participation race that is a great way to get children active without having to worry about their placing. The quiet roads of Leeston provide the perfect course for children of all ages and abilities to go for a dash. Each entrant will receive a race number so their time will be taken but there will be no placing prizes. Instead each finisher will receive a finisher’s prize for completing the race.

The Kids Dash will be run over a 1400m road course. It starts on Gallipoli Street beside the Leeston Medical Centre. Children may be started in age/gender group waves (if entry numbers warrant it) and finish on the same straight as all other races so every child will experience the cheers of all the locals lining High Street.

All entrants under 5 years of age MUST be accompanied by an adult.



Entry Fee: $10

Start time – 10.30am. Briefing 10.10am in Anderson Square
