Leith Bridge added to this year’s 10km and 4km courses


Participants in next month’s Impact Surf to Stadium will use the latest connection in the cycle/walkway which links Dunedin to Port Chalmers.

The Leith Bridge, by Forsyth Barr Stadium, is a new addition to the 10km and 4km courses in this year’s event, which is set to take place on March 24.

Walkers and runners tackling the 10km event will start at Kettle Park at 10am, make their way through Tahuna, Andersons Bay and around the Otago Harbour before ending with a lap of the stadium.

The 4km option will start and finish in the stadium – runners and walkers will head along the cycle/walkway to Ravensbourne, and back.

It will start at 10.30am.

“Everyone finishes doing a lap of the stadium,” Sport Otago business development and events manager Michael Smith said.

Smith said there would be food and activities on offer at the finish line again for participants and spectators to enjoy.

He estimated there were about 1500 competitors and another 500 people watching last year.
