So what do I get for my race fee? Well! We are all about experiences, not things. We are committed to keeping our race costs low, while offering you the very best experience we can! Our race is not competitive and is absolutely perfect for a first time runners and seasoned runners. The environment is always up beat and fun!
Every walker and runner will be rewarded with a slice of pie, complete with your choice of whip cream and/or vanilla ice cream. Pies are primarily purchased from Fifendekel, however because you choose the type of pie you would like, we also outsource from other bakeries or hand make our own pies. Gluten Free? No problem (we hope, unless you like GF apple then no problem)! We will do our very best to accommodate you! We even made a “Boston creme pie” last year from scratch. Did you know it is not even a pie, it is a cake! We had one person request it…however…it was devoured!
The 5 km and 10 km course are suitable for all abilities and accessible for strollers and wheelchairs.
Our event is extremely family oriented, the kids run is a huge hit! We reward our pint size runners with a handcrafted cookie medal at the finish line! You have to be quick with the camera!
In addition, we always have a bouncy castle and tables set out with bubbles and coloring books.
This year we are upping our game, while the 5km and 10km are taking place, we have booked a special magic show for families who are waiting for runners to cross the finish line! The magic show is 40 minutes and will start promptly at 10:35am. Please ensure that your child has a parent or a caregiver watching over them during this time. We would like to thank Giggles Faces n Glitter for being so accommodating for our race!
We know its always a challenge to keep the kids busy while they are waiting for their loved ones to cross the finish line, we like to keep things interesting so they do not get bored!
Prizes: We always have a ton of prizes! For this reason, we are pre-drawing our winners and will notify the winners ahead of time. There will be a table for prize pick up!

About the Charity:
Music Therapy is a program that touches the lives of many children and promotes healthy coping strategies in the midst of hospital treatment. Music therapy sessions can be done individually at the child’s bedside or in small groups in children’s rooms or in a common area in the unit. There is also a weekly group session on The Beach, the largest playroom at the Stollery. The Music Therapy Program at the Stollery Children’s Hospital began in November of 2011 and is operated solely on donations.
