Prams – The 10km jog or walk is suitable for all terrain running prams with hand brakes only however the 5km jog and walk is suitable for most all terrain prams.  Unfortunately we are unable to allow any prams in the 10km or 5km run event, as these are very fast paced events and therefore must ensure to avoid track congestion.
