They will leave from in front of Christchurch Central police station around 1210 hrs for the Square. The route will be Hereford St, left onto Oxford Terrance and then right into Worcester St and into the Square.

All the competitors are physically able so they shall be running on the footpaths. There will be Police runners and 4 police cycles supporting them.

For the first time NZ Police are getting involved with a Law Enforcement Torch Run at various locations across the country to raise awareness of the event.
