If you’re a newbie runner, then the Dingo Dash is a great starting point in building your running experience. We'd love to have you on board! We have two different training plans to help you on your way - one for walkers looking to run and one for more experienced runners looking to set a new PB!
Your registration includes entry to Taronga Western Plains Zoo, your finishers' medal and water bottle.
Children aged four and over must register to participate.
Children under four get free entry into the zoo, so littlies don't need to be registered in the Dingo Dash to participate. However, if you want a medal and racing bib for your under four year old, they will need to be a registered participant.
We advise children under 11 to stay within arms reach of an adult or guardian at all times throughout the race.
