ABOUT

Mini Jog

Why take your kids to Mini Jog?

Mini Jog events are all about participation and fun! They are designed to encourage kids to get out and get active by providing a physical challenge in a friendly and social environment. Place ribbons and barrel draw prizes are awarded at every event. There is also a year-long point score competition with a boy’s and girl’s perpetual trophy.

What would your kids do?

There is a 2 km course along trails and footpaths of Weston Park. The course is out and back, and there is a turn marshal at the 1 km point. The run is conducted in a handicap format (staggered start depending on age and previous run time) which provides everyone an opportunity to win.
