Do not eat 2 hours before your race.

The meet will start at 10:00am  with grade 1’s racing then with grade 2 girls then grade 2 boys, grade 3 girls then grade 3 boys etc.

Even if you’re not a parent volunteer it would be great to see you down there cheering on the kids. The more cheering the better.


The tent will be on the north side of the boardwalk about 100m before the finish line so that we can be cheering on all the runners as they come in.
