RIVER CONNECT 2KM KIDS DASH RUN/WALK – Saturday 21 August

Your kids will feel like real Superhero’s!

Our 2KM Kids Dash is the family favourite event of the Shepparton Running Festival. To enable as many parents and carers to support the kids we have rescheduled this event to Saturday at 2pm. Kids will run or walk one full lap around Victoria Park Lake and the kids will feel like winners when they run up the fully decorated finish chute and receive their medal. To keep it fun we encourage all participants to dress up as their favourite ‘Superhero’. This also means great photos.

The course is well marshalled and parents / carers are more than welcome to to join in for FREE. The event is suitable for but not limited to primary school aged children.

This year our event partner is Kidsafe and the Hunter Boyle Foundation.  We will help them raise vital funds and awareness to help keep our kids safe.

Participate and donate!
