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. The race is designed to challenge the mind and body, relive the best times of your childhood and build team spirit. Checkpoint locations are a secret until you arrive on race day!
A Family Scavenger Hunt challenge will take place following the Race for Kids Awards Ceremony. Participants in family teams of 3 to 6 will each receive loot bags, a chance to win a family costume contest as well as a free entry for family draw prize packages.
Race for Kids teams are made up of four people. There is a registration fee of $10 for each participant. Collectively, each team must raise a minimum of $400 in order to participate and qualify for prizing. (Note: All Race for Kids team members must be 18 and over.)
This year’s race takes place on Saturday, May 25, 2019 at Assiniboine Park.
Funds raised will help support Boys and Girls Clubs of Winnipeg in leveling the playing field so more children and youth have opportunities for bright futures. Our services include after-school drop-ins, environmental programs, nutritious snacks and meals, education programming, organized sports, leadership development and family events for children and youth who need our help the most in Winnipeg.
Prizes will be awarded to teams who come in first, second, and third place; as well, WestJet will award the top fundraiser a trip for two to anywhere WestJet flies! All participants receive a race day backpack, refreshments before and after the race, and are invited to participate in the post-race celebration.
