Youth Runs & Kids Triathlons

Just a quick reminder that if you want us to pre-pack your kids’ race kits for the youth run or 5K, teachers or Kids Run Club leaders need to submit participant names by tomorrow (Wednesday) at 3 pm. 5K kits will be held at the New Registrations area which is on the lower level of the WTCC along with Youth Run Kit Pick-up. Online registration closed last Wednesday at 5 pm. Race day registration is an option for anyone still undecided as to whether to take part. Long-range forecast for Saturday is 19 and sunny!

I would like to know who might be going to the Bluenose 5km run on Saturday and if everyone were to be going I would go too…instead of our usual Kids Run Club in Wolfville. Please email me at to let me know what you’re up to on Saturday. Also. if our youth members would like a run workout on the track on Saturday, or are going to the Bluenose 5km Run I’d like to hear from them so I can plan accordingly. Here are some of the Youth Series Runs and the Kids Triathlon Series coming up. Not on the Kids Triathlon Schedule is the potential Kids Xterra (offroad) Triathlon @ Reservoir Park for Mud Creek Days. Please message me if there is interest in such an event!
