We welcome volunteers of all ages, however, children under the age of 18 years must have parental or guardian consent and be supervised by their parent, guardian or adult at all times while working together in the same role and area during the event. We encourage school groups to participate and all students under the age of 18 must be accompanied and supervised by their school teacher from the same school.


In order to volunteer in the Kids Run; volunteers must be over 18 years old and complete a Mandatory Background Check as required. If you are new and have not lived in British Columbia (BC) for more than two years, or an International Student with no credit and residence history in BC, your background check application will not be processed by the BC Ministry of Justice. Please select a different volunteer role and area that does not require a Background Check.


Some roles are password protected for specific individuals, teams and groups. Select Captains have been given a unique password to provide their volunteers private access to their role and shift for registration. If you cannot view or see your role and shift then you need a password.
