The Course

Both the Junior and Mini routes start on Clarence Esplanade, opposite the Skate Park. From here, all the runners head west past the D-Day museum and Blue Reef Aquarium.

Mini runners then turn right into Serpentine Way while Junior runners head up to a turnaround point next to Mozzarella Joes. Both runs then head up Serpentine Way and down Lady’s Mile to reach Avenue De Caen. The kids then head for the finish back on Clarence Esplanade.
