There will be three races — a 7.5-kilometre Long Course, 4.2-kilometre Short Course, and the new 2-kilometre Kids’ Dash. There are marshals at intervals on the course to direct participants and ensure safety.

Pets are not allowed on any of the courses to avoid course congestion and ensure the safety of the participants.


Long & Short Courses

The 7.5-kilometre Long Course is a two-loop course, while the 4.2-kilometre Short Course is a one-loop course. Both races will start and finish on the Diggers Drive in Kalinga Park.

The safety briefing will commence at 7:45 a.m. and the race will start at 8:00 a.m. Cut-off times will apply to this course; participants are required to exit the course if not finished by 9:30 a.m.




Kids’ Dash

The Kids’ Dash is a new race that was designed to encourage children to participate and be active. Parents and guardians with registered children under 8 years of age should register to accompany their children around the course.

The race will start at 10:00 a.m. with start and finish points at the Diggers Drive. There will be no cut-off time for the Kids’ Dash, so every kid will get a chance to have a finisher medal.

Although there is already a dedicated course for the kids, children 8 years and older can still register for the other courses. Parents should sign a waiver stating that the child is physically fit and capable to run on the courses.

Although the Kalinga Dash is one of the biggest fun runs in Clayfield, there are other activities scheduled for the day.

A variety of food stalls will serve BBQs, egg rolls, healthy and vegan snacks, cakes and sweets, and “sno-cones”. All of the proceeds will go to the Eagle Junction State School P&C Association for the benefit of the students.

This family fun day will have adult and children entertainments. The Eagle Junction State School will once again host the Side Show Alley. There will be stalls that will keep the little ones entertained.

The rides will keep the kids busy. Kids will sure enjoy the jumping castles, giant slide, and tea cup ride. The older kids (and adults) will surely engage with the new rides and games including the Sizzler, Lazer Tag, Dodgem Cars, and Footy Shoot Out.

Ride armbands can be purchased when you register for the Kalinga Dash for $20 before the online pre-registration closes and for $25 on the day.
