Taking place on Saturday 2 December, the Impi Sportswear Kids Dash offers our young runners the opportunity to experience the excitement of race day, whilst enjoying the outdoors and the friendly event atmosphere.

Parents, family and friends are invited to cheer along our little stars in either the 3km or 1.5km events taking place on this spectator friendly course.

Both events will take place on road surface, utilising the Oceanway Pathway in Coolangatta.


The Impi Sportswear Kids Dash course will take place on the Oceanway Pathway in Coolangatta. The Impi Sportswear Kids Dash course will start and finish at the start line based within Queen Elizabeth Park, with runners heading south along the pathway to Greenmount and return. Our little stars will complete a lap of honour on their return around Queen Elizabeth Park before bringing it home down the finish chute.

Runners in the 3km event will complete two laps. Lead and Trail Bikes will be in place for runner safety along with drink station at the lap point & finish line.
