Lees/Croydon Park 23rd  May, 2018- ZONE CARNIVAL

Timetable 2018


*** To make recording easier and to avoid confusion please write the age of the child racing on their hands in texta – if they are 8 or 9 in 2017 or turning 8 or 9 in 2017 then they go in the 8/9 year olds race etc. This is one race so please send 4 runners in total (not four 8 plus four 9 year olds).


8:30 – 10:30 = Course set up


10:00 –-10:30 = Children and teachers arrive and sit down on the grass/concrete near the toilets/ tennis courts/ Lees Park – spectators (on map – number 16). Please look for your school label and sit in your allocated area.


10:30 – 11:30 = Walk course 2km groups  and then 3km groups


# A teacher from each school will be allocated a number/checkpoint (labelled on the map). Hence I need names asap to finalise the map please!

We will drop teachers off at their checkpoints as we walk the course (please bring a chair to sit on if you want). Please make sure you make your way to the front of the line as we approach your checkpoint/number.


The 10 year olds will run first so the younger children can watch and get a better feel for the course. Tell the 8/9 year olds not to line up for the first race! This is also what happens at the Regional carnival.
