Come join the fun at the Race For The Kids event held at Esther Short Park! You can help out in the Whisper Running booth, participate in the 5k, or both! Coach Dave will arrive at 6:30am to begin booth set-up. The 5k start is set for 9:00am and the Kids Dash is set for 10:00am (register here). Between set-up and racing (7-9am) and post-race (10:30-noon), volunteers will help by distributing flyers and talk with potential runners and their parents about Whisper Running.
THE RACE: The 5k race is free for the kids (ages 17 and under) and cost $30 for adults (18 and over). There will be practice at Hudson's Bay from noon-1:30pm, so you'll want to be mindful not to race and attend practice - choose to do one or the other.
PARENTS: If your child wishes to volunteer, you may drop him/her off with Coach Dave, who will give them tasks throughout the morning in the capacity of volunteering. In other words, you do not need to remain at the event - drop and go is fine, as long as you (the adult/parent) check-in with Coach Dave at drop-off, and you arrive by 11:30am for pick-up.
If your child wishes to run, you must preregister and be on-site at the event before, during, and after the race. You are definitely welcome to help out at the booth, peruse the other booths, or volunteer with the main event in some capacity.
RSVP: Please connect with Coach Dave if you wish (or your child wishes) to volunteer or participate (or both) at this event.
