Race for Kids

Grown-Ups Play. Kids Win!


This year Boys and Girls Clubs of Winnipeg is teaming up with Kaur Meets World to expand our event to include the Lion’s Run. We will still have the more challenging Race for Kids, but we have added something for the whole family.

Race for Kids is an urban adventure race where teams of four compete in a race to the finish line, completing a series of 10 challenging Checkpoints along the way & an optional Mystery Checkpoint. Challenges are designed to challenge the mind and body, relive the best times of your childhood and build team spirit. The Challenges and Checkpoint locations are a secret until you arrive on Race Day.

New This Year! Lion’s Run is a smaller scale version of the Race for Kids for families, toddlers, children and teens. The race will include four Checkpoints and will be completed in various waves.


Teams are made up of four people. There is a registration fee of $10 for each participant upon registration. Collectively, each team must raise a minimum of $400 in order to participate. (Note: All team members must be 18 and over.)All race participants will be asked to dress as Super Heroes. There will be costume prizes for Race for Kids and Lion’s Run Teams, as well as a teen and child category.
