1K MINI DASH - IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE START TIME.
The Mini Dash is a short run starting on Castle Street at approximately 11.00am. The start time is subject to change dependent on the clearing of all runners from the main 5K run finish area. Once the main Liverpool Santa Dash runners are clear of the finish line then the Mini Dash is able to start. The decision to start the Mini Dash is governed by a safety check of the course and an assessment of the weather conditions. This is necessary to ensure the safety of everyone taking part.
THE START LINE
Is located part way along Castle Street close to the pelican crossing at the junction of BRUNSWICK STREET and COOK STREET.
Follows a route along Castle Street to Lord Street then on to North John Street, Victoria Street, left on to Stanley Street and then Dale Street to return to the finish line which is situated just before the Town Hall.
