CAMP MARYDALE

HAMILTON, ON

Introducing the GOPHER (GO-FER). A new and exciting kids trail running and navigation festival!

For participants 14 and under, this unique DontGetLost event provides two trail running distances (1km & 4km's) along the lakeside trails of Camp Marydale as well as a scramble style navigation race (no experience necessary, we will have beginner level to intermediate level checkpoints).

 

Kids can chose to do one of the single distance runs (1k or 4k) and GO-FER more and combine the scramble for a full morning of running and navigation!

You do not need to be a participant of Adventure Running Kids to take part, you just have to be keen to get out on some trails and run!

Parents are welcome to run alongside their kids, but it is NOT compulsory. In fact, we encourage parents to let kids to do this by themselves (within reason!).
