Impi Sportswear announced as new Naming Rights Partner for the GC50 Run Festival Kids Dash

The GC50 Run Festival is proud to announce that Impi Sportswear are the new Naming Rights Partner for the Kids Dash events. Impi Sportswear specialises in activewear for teen and tween girls and we share their vision of empowering young athletes to be active and chase their goals.

With over 40 years of experience in clothing production, retail and running, the GC50 Run Festival are excited to be working alongside this local company, and we are proud to also support their elite team of junior runners.

As a new addition to the GC50 events, the Twilight Run Festival will include the Impi Sportswear Kids Dash, offering a choice of 1.5km and 3km distances for all children. Parents and guardians are also invited to run with their kids! This will take place, along with the 5km event, on the afternoon of Saturday, December 5. There will also be entertainment, live music, ‘best dressed’ awards and lots of fun for family and friends at the Event Village.

“We are excited to be working with a local company who are aligned with our ambitions of encouraging all children to participate, enjoy and make friends while engaging in a healthy lifestyle,” says Event Organiser Adam Goodger. “Impi Sportswear encompass our passion for running and inclusion, making sport accessible and fun for all children…and where better to do it than on the beautiful Gold Coast!”

The Impi Sportswear Kids Dash course will start and finish at the start line based within Queen Elizabeth Park, Coolangatta. Our little stars will complete a lap of honour around Queen Elizabeth Park before bringing it home down the finish chute. There will be a lead bike and a trail bike in place, ensuring our young runners stay on course. There will also be ‘Mini Motivators’ that will be running at various paces in both distances to help our little boys and girls to the finish line.

Founder and director of Impi Sportswear, Kim Knox says, “Impi had so much fun at last year’s GC50, we had to come back for more. And this time, we are delighted to be part of the show. Impi Sportswear is now the proud sponsor of the GC50 Kids 1.5km and 3km dash. There will be plenty of Impis in the mix, so bring out your warrior within and join in the fun!” Impi Sportswear will again be onsite at the event with all of their great activewear. GC50 will also be giving away some of their fantastic gear throughout the year, so stay tuned!

The GC50 Run Festival, which has been running for 24 years, has relocated this year to Coolangatta at the southern end of the Gold Coast. The 50km, 30km, 15km and 2 x 25km relay event will take place on December 6. The Twilight Run Festival takes place the day before, and all events are filling fast.
