For the mini athletes in training, there will be will be kiddies races on both days. On the 5th September, kiddies can clamber and climb their way over a miniature obstacle course. On the 6th September kiddies can pedal their way around Marks Park by entering the 1km / 2km fun race (Enter online entries are limited to 150 kids per distance total of 300 at R85 each).
