About the Kids Run


Things to remember:

  1. Arrive early to experience the festive Start Line vibe.
  2. Hug your kids. High-five volunteers and the BMO Bear.
  3. Run, run, run! Have fun, smile and wave at the cameras, thank volunteers, and show-off your medal!

A corral will be used at the Start Line to provide a smooth and efficient start for all our events. Runners are placed in one of three corrals based on age. Each corral is clearly marked. No gear check is provided.


Post-event snacks, drinks and medals will be provided!

Please plan for all types of weather on Race Day as we are on the beautiful West Coast! Parents should be prepared for changing weather throughout the day, and have a plan for post-race recovery. It is highly recommended that parents bring warm and waterproof gear at the Start Line. While we hope for good weather, please plan to have appropriate post-race clothing.

Course Amenities

Volunteer marshals will accompany children at the Start Line and a Pace Bunny will guide the children along the course. After the race, all participating children will have the exciting opportunity to meet and have their bibs signed by some of the Elite Athletes.

This family-friendly fun run takes kids aged 5 to 12 on a loop around Lost Lagoon. View Map
