THE KIDS RACE: Never Too Young to Cheat Death!
Welcome to the North Face® Canadian KIDS Death Race 2009!
ABOUT THE KIDS DEATH RACE
This the best way we know to introduce kids to the sport of adventure racing. The Kids Death Race takes place on the Sunday of each August long weekend, and is one of the highlights of the weekend. The course is approximately 5km long on wilderness trails, with one big mud pit, which everyone must wade through, and one big hill that comes near the end of the course. Anyone making the cut-off time (90 minutes for 5km) is a winner and will receive a Kids Death Race finisher’s medal!
The course is closely supervised by adults. Parents may accompany their children on the wilderness portion of the trail. Children must start and finish the race to the greatest extent possible on their own, although some very young children and kids with special needs may need parental assistance. Kids are required to carry their own food and water for the entire race - there are no aid stations.
Over the years the kids’ death race has become quite popular and very, very competitive. Parents be advised that smaller, less competitive, or slower children must go to the back of the starting line. We provide the barf buckets, but parents...please use common sense when fueling your little racer before the event!
Check out the family fun happening at DeathFest over the weekend!
