What is the Weet-bix Little BIG DASH™?
Weet-Bix Little BIG DASH™ is an obstacle adventure full of colour, fun and guaranteed laughs for adult and child family teams from two to six enjoying activity together.
What do I wear on event day?
As this event is based on fun activities, do dress up in a costume. There will be best dressed prizes on the day BUT please dress for the weather conditions and temperature on the day; and very importantly, wear joggers / sandshoes / running shoes with soft soles only. Note that shoes with heels are specifically NOT ALLOWED due to the nature of the activities. Wear shorts and t-shirt (not your best clothes – you could get a little bit grubby) if you are not into dressing up. See gallery for tips!
What's the first thing I need to do when I arrive on event morning?
You need to attend Check In to pick up your Team Pack and then proceed to the warm up prior to call up to assemble in the Start Zone. If you have spare time on the day before or after the course enjoy the free village activities.
How hard is the Weet-bix Little BIG DASH™?
The Weet-Bix Little BIG DASH™ unique activities and obstacles have been developed as suitable for kids from age 5 to 15 and for adults in good health and fitness. This is not a gym hardened veteran’s obstacle race, but rather a great day out for parents and children that promises adventure, fun and plenty of shared moments to remember.
What time do I arrive and how long do I allow to make the most of Weet-Bix Little BIG DASH™?
Arrive approx. an hour and a half before your START time to Check In. Select your wave/start time when registering. Allow a minimum of approx. two and a half to three hours from your selected Check In time to make the most of the event. Activities will finish when the final participants have completed the course. We recommend that families allow time to enjoy the village activities associated with Weet-Bix Little BIG DASH™.
Can I do this event with three or four children at the one time?
Yes. This event is now designed to be completed in parent/child teams with no more than two children per adult. An additional child or two will mean an additional entry in your team with an additional supporting adult. You can enter in a number of different combinations to a max of 2 adults and 4 children. See pricing table below and entry form for the various options available.
Can an older sibling complete this event with their younger sibling, instead of a parent?
Yes, provided they are entered with your permission (as parent) and there is a parent and another older person over 16 in your team with no more than 4 children. Please email us or call our Customer Service Team on 1800 989 999 if you need to discuss.
Can a team have just adults or just kids?
No. The event is designed to be completed with at least one parent and at least one of their children in the team, so a second adult (over the age of 16 years) nominated by the parent could participate with or without extra children between the ages of 5 and 15 years nominated by the parent.
Who are the organisers of Weet-Bix Little BIG DASH™?

A Weet-Bix Little BIG DASH™ t-shirt will be handed to each participant at the final Hand Stand stage.

If a team member can't attend can I find a replacement?
Provided you are changing one of your children for another of your children (this must be an immediate family member) or you are authorising another adult who can sign the alternative adult waiver, we can facilitate the change through a Change of Team form on the day at the Manual Check In tent. This may require some waiting and the parent or legal guardian of the child participating must be present to sign the waiver on the form. A $10 change fee will apply. Unfortunately we are unable to take any other replacements on event morning.
