The Mini Dusky mountain bike (10 km) and the Mini Pyramid run (5 km)
The kids mini Dusky and mini Pyramid were introduced as fun events for kids who are too young to attempt the longer events. They were designed for kids ranging in age from about 5 to 12-14 years. Now that we have introduced a 10km run and 16km mountain bike, some of the older kids may want to try the longer distance. As there is such an age range in these kids ‘mini’ events, we do not award place-getters and there is no formal prize-giving for the kids. However all kids receive a participation certificate, some goodies and the satisfaction of having given it a go.
The Mini Dusky and the Mini Pyramid are aimed at all ages although we ask that kids under eight get accompanied by a responsible older person. Maximum age should be around 12 – 13. The events start and finish at the same place as the larger events and take in parts of the full courses.
Kids under 9 must be accompanied by an adult or responsible teenager.
