Running With Children
Participants who are 13 and under must be accompanied by a participating adult (18+). Participants under the age of 5 can run for free but must still be checked in at the sign-in tent and have pre-registered through the registration system (Race Roster). Wheelchairs, strollers and pushchairs are permitted on course however please note that the terrain on the course may vary. (Hills, roads, pathways, grass, unpaved trails). Each city will have a unique course as no two locations will be the same. The Red Deer courses will be a 5k course.
Faster runners please keep to the left when running through the bubble bogs. Participants that are walking and with strollers, etc keep to the right. If running with small children it is a good idea to hold children's hands as you go through the bubbles. No stopping in the bubbles, if you stop in the bubble you can be hidden from others that are running through the bubble bog. Please at all times have your race bib attached to you as this is how we know you're a participant in the run. If you need assistance on the course look for race volunteers and ask for assistance.
