We’ve created a new division as a natural progression from Little Athletics to the trails
This division is for students between the age of 13 - 17
We strongly believe the more people who get outside and enjoy nature, spending time in our beautiful parks and reserves, the better these places will be protected for the future. We see U-17 as the next generation of custodians for our trails.
We’ve got 3 events for the junior runners to participate in.
Saturday: 2km sprint and 7km night run. Sunday 5.5km undulating trail
Saturday Middleton Beach
2 KM sprint
-Rego NOW Open
The start of the weekend! If you’re signed up for all 3 events you only need to rego once. You collect your race bib that gets you into everything else for the whole weekend! You'll receive a finisher medal when you finish this one on Middleton Beach.
NIGHT RUN JUNIORS
(13-17 with adult)
-Rego Now Open-
You'll have to run with an adult and wear a headlamp for this adventure! You'll receive a buff when you arrive back at the finish event village.
ONE PEAK JUNIORS
-Rego NOW Open
The final race of the weekend, sees you racing the adults! You'll receive a finisher medal when you arrive back at the finish event village.
A "Non-Running" way for U-17 to get involved
Who: A maximum of 12 students with interest in the “behind the scenes” of a major event. They do not need to be runners, however a keen interest in the outdoors would be encouraged.
What: They will receive training and roles of responsibility for our Saturday juniors run.
When: One workshop before the event. Then event day.
Dates to be outlined when applications for the Leadership Program open.
How: Through application process with support of teachers and parents. We’ll then facilitate the training session and provide rosters for event day.
