THE DATE FOR THE 2019 MINI DASH WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON
The Mini Dash is a community Fun Run for children aged 5 – 13 years, and an interactive Activity Village for the whole family to join.
Now in its second year, the Mini Dash is back with some new and improved changes for 2018!
We have removed the relay races from the day’s programme to make the event more accessible to children of all ages. Instead, the Mini Dash will host a short distance Fun Run for your kids, split by age category.
This year’s event will include even more activities in the village. Children will collect a small gift or giveaway after completing each healthy activity and will also receive a medal upon completing 10 activities (including the Fun Run).
The Mini Dash offers a holistic approach to family wellness through participation in different sports and activities, healthy eating tips and nutrition advice.
There is also a packed schedule of main stage showcases.
