Do I have to register my child if they are in a pram?

Email our team at email@example.com for a promo code for a discounted entry for the child in the pram.
Do I have to register to run with my child in the Liv-Eat 1 Mile?
Short answer is yes, as its a requirement of our insurance.
If you have already entered one of our other events and are running with a child to support them, simply mention that to our officials when you collect your race bib at the Expo and you can get a Liv-eat 1 mile bib for you at no cost. Just swap your bib after you finish the half marathon, 10km or 5km event and put the 1km bib on, so our officials and timing system don't get confused!

All participants in the half marathon, 10km, 5km and 1-mile events will receive a finisher's medal as they cross the finish line.
