City to surf question

Are children allowed scooter next to me for this event? Thinking of participating for first time ever

"No Dogs, Bicycles or Rollerblades Permitted, thank you."

I would guess a scooter would not be allowed either, for the safety of others.

Imagine having kids on scooters zooming around between people, nightmare.

Well they certainly use them! I've done it the last few years (not with kids) and there are kids there with rollerblades and scooters. to be honest it's crowded so they are far safer walking or jogging with you.

City2Surf is a free for all.

BTW if you are walking, get to the back of the line.

There was kids on scooters last year :)

True dat. They don't enforce their rules. Go ahead and show up with the wheeled kid - why not? Everyone else does.

Here I was last year, running happily along at about mid 5 minute per kilometre pace, and I get passed by husband and wife either side of me, pushing babies in buggies.

Afterooking on website 80$ for us to walk 6km think I will just take the kids towalk around hagley park

Don't look at the Colour Run. We did that last year - $255 for four of us! (no discount for kids unless they're under 5). And to make it worse, it was 8 degrees, with a howling southerly and freezing rain for the entire run - in February. Not something we'll be repeating in a hurry.

The Colour Run was brutal, wasn't it?! I have never been so cold at an event. It's also very expensive for something that doesn't even benefit any charities.

sw20, Jan 26, 1:20am
$80 for a 5k run? Are they having a laugh? The full Christchurch Marathon is $80 and is a far more organised event, not just a run around an already closed off park.

Please don't let your children take scooters!
They damn well hurt when you get rammed with them :-(

teamgjt, Jan 26, 1:25am
It's $20 PP

sw20, Jan 26, 1:28am
The Colour Run is $80. The City2Surf is indeed $20, and it goes to charity. Thought the 5k would have given it away.

pommie777, Jan 26, 2:02am
Yes, it was awful. The weather didn't really get bad until we were already there, or we probably would have given it a miss (despite the cost). Our poor kids were absolutely freezing, so we left as soon as we finished it (when, typically, the sun came out!)
